On Monday, August 18th, 2014, West Des Moines EMS/IA EMS Alliance, West Des Moines Fire Department, West Des Moines Police Department, and the teaching and administrative staff of West Des Moines Schools participated in a Mock Active Shooter Drill at Valley Southwoods Freshman High School. This was the first day back at school for the teachers. The drill provided the opportunity for the school employees to practice their lockdown procedure and the public safety employees to practice their procedures with an active shooter and a mass casualty incident (MCI).
