Wenatchee Valley College was the home for emergency training exercises early this morning.

The college and Confluence Health teamed up with first responders for training aimed towards helping emergency training at the college above all.

The training began at 8:00 a.m. where participants and actors began helping set up for the morning events.

The campus simulated a lockdown at 10 a.m. where actors were in a scenario where an active shooter was in the building.

First responders led the actors out of the school with those “injured” being transported into emergency medical service vehicles going back to Central Washington Hospital.

One actor received transportation by helicopter just down the block on the soccer field by Smith Gymnasium.

The college held the training to better help prepare for emergency situations in addition to practicing response times.

First responders from cities such as Cashmere and Chelan joined campus personnel to assist in the training and to also help practice response procedures.
