Active Shooter Drill Set for Good Shepherd on Thursday Evening


Good Shepherd Health Care System (GSHCS) will take part in a full-scale active shooter preparedness drill on campus on Thursday, Sept. 22.

The simulation drill, which will begin at approximately 7 p.m., will train GSHCS staff to prepare for their roles, responsibilities, and facilitate interaction with outside agencies and community partners should a shooting scenario happen on campus.

GSHCS will simulate locking down the campus during the drill for a span of approximately 2-3 hours.  While the drill is underway, GSHCS will remain fully operational, continuing to care for patients needing medical treatment.  LifeFlight and Air Link Northwest will simulate safe transport of the drill victims from the area to a safe location. Those near the hospital may hear and see the emergency response system and additional law enforcement officials at entrances.

Any questions pertaining to this drill may be directed to Good Shepherd Health Care System via the website contact submission form at
