Carilion Franklin Memorial Hospital Participates in Community-Wide Disaster Drill

(This was a Drill - The patients pictured below are volunteer actors from Franklin County High School)

CFMH participated in Franklin County's community-wide disaster drill. The scenario, a shoot at Franklin County High School, comes just three weeks after reports of a gunman caused a real-life lockdown at Ferrum College. CFMH received 8 "patients" from the incident. The goal is to treat everything as if it was real - and learn how we can be better prepared.
