St. Elizabeth College of Nursing, in conjunction with the Utica Police Department (UPD), conducted an “Active Shooter Drill” for its College staff and students on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at the College campus. The drill is part of the College’s Campus Safety and Security program and is designed to provide students, faculty and staff with a scenario that mimics an actual situation involving an active shooter on campus.
College President Marian Kovatchitch has taken a proactive stance in keeping the College community on alert. “Today we practiced for a situation that we all hope will never occur,” she said. “We are grateful for the excellent assistance we received from key personnel at St. Elizabeth Medical Center, as well as the UPD.”
