It’s Only a Drill

Bangor, Maine— Don’t be alarmed if you see unusual activity at Miller Drug Westgate in Bangor Tuesday.

A community wide emergency preparedness drill will be conducted to allow pharmacy personnel, first responders and area hospitals to plan and train for an active shooter scenario.

Kathy Knight, Director Northeastern Maine Regional Resource Center, says with an increase in violent incidents throughout the country, hospital and pharmacy staff will benefit from this proactive preparedness training.

“We want to make sure that everyone is prepared, that we have good plans in place, that there’s clarity in regard to the plan and response between the community partners, and the only way to do that is to exercise the scenario,” states Knight.

The training involves Eastern Maine Medical Center, St. Joseph Hospital, Miller Drug Westgate, along with other emergency personnel, and will be evaluated on many levels.

It takes place Tuesday from 6:30 to 8:30 AM to avoid any interruption to patient care or customer service.
