Bradley County Authorities Hold Active Shooter Drill

Saturday, April 21, 2018

The Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, Cleveland Fire Department, Bradley County Fire and Rescue, Bradley County 911 Communications Center, and Bradley County Emergency Management Agency took part in an active shooter exercise early this morning at Bradley Central High School to evaluate tactics and technologies for responding to and containing rapidly escalating shooting incidents.

The exercise was organized around a scenario in which multiple active shooters were able to infiltrate the high school. During the exercise lawenforcement and medical personnel were tasked with not only responding to the incident but dealing with the aftermath.

Sheriff Eric Watson said, “The exercise that was conducted allowed the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office the opportunity to demonstrate and strengthen our active shooter response capabilities with other firstresponders. I pray that our community never faces an active shooter in our schools; however our agency recognizes the importance of training in order to be prepared to respond in a moment’s notice.”

Participants from Bradley County Schools and Cleveland City School Districts participated in the exercise which gave them a realistic depiction of an active shooter situation. The sheriff’s office will analyze the exercise along with feedback from other first-responder agencies to determine what worked – and what needs work when facing challenging situations such as an active shooter.
