(Denison, IA) – Crawford County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) personnel including clinic staff, ambulance crew, and emergency department will lead an active shooting training drill at the CCMH City Center clinic on Friday, October 18, 2019 at approximately 11:40 a.m. Assisting with the training are the Dow City-Arion Ambulance, Manilla Ambulance, Denison Police Department, Crawford County Sheriff’s Department, Denison Fire Department, Crawford County Communications Center, and Greg Miller, Crawford County Emergency Manager.

Bruce Musgrave, CCMH Ambulance department manager, said the exercise allows the agencies to practice procedures together in a less pressurized situation but in a realistic environment.

“The active shooter training exercise is being held to ensure proper readiness and response to such an event”, Musgrave said. “Residents are being notified of the exercise to reduce any unnecessary calls to the Crawford County Communications Center in regard to the personnel and vehicles which will be used in the scenario.”

Musgrave said the training scenario will be initiated by a call to the 911 Center followed by response of law enforcement agencies to ensure the safety of responders and apprehension of the suspected perpetrator. Medical personnel will participate in the triage, treatment, and transportation of all patients involved in the scenario while being assisted by the Denison Fire Department. The entire exercise is expected to last approximately two hours.
