MCMINN COUNTY, Tenn. — Since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting last December, local law enforcement and school officials have been stepping up security.
McMinn County is kicking it up another notch by acting out fake attacks in an effort to prepare deputies for a worst case scenario.
Shortly after the Sandy Hook tragedy, the McMinn County Sheriff's Office and school board worked together to assess their schools' safety and make emergency response plans. Wednesday, they took those plans from paper and into a school to put them to the test, complete with a fake shooter and teachers and students pretending to be victims.
