Lisbon drill aims to improve emergency response
Dressed in camouflage garb and hoodies, two armed men entered the Lisbon Central School cafeteria Thursday and opened fire, their assault with blank rounds of ammunition designed to simulate a real school shooting and test the response of school and emergency personnel.

That's right, create, manipulate and massage, maintain a ridiculous level of irrational fear. juswt keep it going for as long as it takes to obtain additional swtate and federal funding.
It's another money grab.
Fear is now big business in schools in NNY.

I don't agree with the NYSAFE act, and most times I disagree with the local/state/national government, but I think that having these drills once in awhile across the county is a good idea. It says right in the article that most cops have no idea about the layout of the schools in our area, and should the situation arise for real, it would be difficult to navigate through the unfamiliar territory. I think the drills are smarter than any gun control programs.

One drill and they know the layout; forget that...
If they are nay good at all, they already possess the building layout, and practice on paper anyway.
It's just pathetic the way people are just so stupid and go along with the fascist law and order bullshit ala fear.
Get a real life, what ifs...

You guys are crazy. This drill is to help protect our children if something so terrible was to happen. I was apart of the drill. It was more so for the teachers; so they know the proper protocol in a situation like this. It has nothing to do with money......obviously you don't have kids.......I do, and it makes me a feel a little better knowing the teachers know what to do in this situation.
