Active Shooter Drill in Crown Point Teaches Teamwork
CROWN POINT, Indiana - University of St. Francis-Crown Point nursing students triage "victims" during an active shooter drill there recently.
They and students from the Franciscan Health Crown Point Emergency Medical Services Academy participated in the third-annual exercise, which promotes collaboration and training for students, who also portrayed shooting victims and first-responders.
Crown Point and Lake County Sheriff's police participated as well. Lake County officers confronted the "shooter," portrayed by academy director Rob Dowling, who was taken into custody after "wounding and killing" nursing students in hallways and classrooms before being apprehended and taken into custody.
