The City of Bristol, Virginia’s Police, Fire, and Life Saving Crew will be conducting an active shooter exercise at one of the schools located in the city limits. This unannounced drill will be conducted on a day that school is not in session. Please remember that this is only a drill, you may hear blank gunshots and see persons being removed on stretchers, do not be alarmed! The City is conducting this preventative training to be better prepared should a tragedy occur in our area. During this exercise, law enforcement and emergency services agencies will cause congestion in some areas of the city responding to the scene. We ask that if you see heavy emergency management personnel do not impede the flow of traffic and avoid the area in which they are present.


Thank you for your cooperation during this exercise!
