Active shooter drill planned

05/13/2015

Uniontown Hospital police and staff will host and engage in an active shooter drill at the hospital tomorrow (Thursday), beginning around 9 a.m.

The hospital will be working in conjunction with Uniontown police, the Pennsylvania State police, the Fayette County detective’s office, Fayette County 911, Fayette County Emergency Management Agency and local emergency and ambulance services to conduct the mock event.

The drill has been in planning stages for months and all aspects of the drill have been created to make it as realistic as possible, while maintaining full support and care for hospital patients. The drill will be announced throughout the hospital multiple times prior to occurring and all primary areas where the staged situation will play out will not affect patient care. Additional signage will also be placed inside the hospital alerting visitors to the drill and ensuring patient and visitor safety.

Please be advised that this event is only a drill and inform any and all callers regarding this incident accordingly.

If you have any questions, please contact Josh Krysak, coordinator of Community Relations at Uniontown Hospital, at 724-430-8634.
