Webster County Schools would like to say a big thank you to all of the community agencies who participated in our full-scale tornado drill at the Dixon campus on May 7th. Matt Bell, District Safety Coordinator, collaborated with community EMS, first responders, etc. to make this event happen.
Webster County employees from all WC schools were assigned areas and duties or roles to play. No students were actually on the campus.
An announcement was made that a tornado had touched down and hit the middle school and high school. Team leaders for each group gave instructions to their group (e.g., "We have 5 people seriously injured. One has a broken leg, one a broken arm, and three have pieces of flying glass in their arms and legs.") Staff had to assess the situation and render or secure aid. After the drill, participants met in a debrief session to assess what went right and wrong, and what we should do to ensure we are better prepared in the event a tornado actually hits one of our schools.
