If you're driving by Lutheran Hospital Dec. 3 and you see the emergency area crawling with law enforcement don't be alarmed -- it's just an exercise. Beginning at 10 a.m. the hospital will hold a full-scale, emergency training exercise. The scenario is an active shooter, and the exercise will focus on emergency response. It is being staged in collaboration with local emergency responders.
The simulation will help assure a coordinated, timely and effective response and recovery in the event of a major incident at the facility.
