Jacksonville Middle School prepares the community for the worse

(KYTX) -  A life-like disaster drill in Jacksonville prepares the entire community for a possible school shooting.


In the simulation, two mock shooters opened fire at Jacksonville Middle School, wounding 10 and killing six. 

It was a chance for police, swat teams, EMS, firefighters and school staff to work together.
 
Those involved say the drill seemed very real and was held for a very real purpose. 

"This is something very real that could happen to any school and we just want to be as prepared as we can be if it happened here."

"If this happened tomorrow we'd be better prepared than we were today."

 Rusk ISD also did an emergency drill today.

The district held a mock anthrax attack and involved all its local emergency workers as well.
