Webster Center School District is thankful to have the support of the town of Webster, Webster Police Department and area first responders to ensure that our district’s emergency response protocols are consistently reviewed and practiced in order to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff.
Over the past 18 months, the district has been planning with area first responders to hold a large-scale emergency drill on June 27 at Schlegel Road Elementary School, 1548 Schlegel Road.
Agencies that have participated in the planning process for this important drill and will be at Schlegel Road on June 27 include: Webster CSD, Webster Police Department, Webster Volunteer Fire Department, West Webster Volunteer Fire Department, Webster Emergency Medical Service and Northeast Quadrant Advanced Life Support. I am incredibly grateful to the hundreds of hours all of these agencies, along with Webster CSD’s Drill Coordinator Brian Zimmer and Webster CSD Director of Safety and Security Neil Flood, have dedicated to making
this large-scale drill come to fruition.
Safety during the drill is a top priority. To that end, it’s important to note that Schlegel Road will be temporarily closed to traffic from Phillips Road to Salt Road, beginning at 7:30 a.m. June 27. That portion of Schlegel Road will reopen after the drill is complete at noon. As a reminder, Webster schools will be closed for the summer at the time of this drill.
The drill will involve all of these agencies simulating and responding to a large-scale school incident at Schlegel Road Elementary School to test these agencies’ coordinated response. On-site evaluators will be present throughout the drill to provide feedback that will help develop an after action plan that will be provided to all participating agencies to help with even more training opportunities in the future.
Thank you in advance for your patience with the temporary Schlegel Road closure on June 27 as the district and our community’s first responders continue to practice these drills that are paramount to the safety of our students.
