On Friday, January 4th 2019, the Napa County Office of Emergency Services (OES) will conduct a full scale Active Shooter Drill in American Canyon and Calistoga. The drill is expected to begin at 9:00 AM at the following locations:
School will be out of session and the locations will be closed to the public. During the exercise, those in the immediate area may notice multiple law enforcement and fire vehicles, first responders, caution tape strung around the sites, and loud noises/voices. Businesses and those living within a half mile of each site were sent community advisory notices.
The purpose of the drill is to provide training and evaluate the immediate tactical response to an active shooter situation as well as identify future training needs and/or policies and procedures related to an emergency response.
Public Information staff will be on location at each site to provide traditional and social media updates throughout the day. There will be limited opportunity for media outlets to observe the drill. Media interested in observing a portion of the training should contact the lead public information personnel for each site (listed above) by 5:00 PM on Thursday, January 3rd.
