AHS holds realistic disaster drill

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany High Students showed off what they have learned this year, in emergency response to a disaster.

Thursday morning, the Albany High Student Rescue Teams held a mock disaster, showing how they would react if a bomb exploded outside their school, injuring a number of students.

School and Albany city officials came to observe the mock disaster, and became part of the scenario. Emergency and Disaster Preparedness Students set up triage areas to care for the injured, and secure the scene.

First Responder students gave emergency medical aid. "Yes, we have a response plan, and this is putting our plan to work. The only way you can get it better is if you practice, practice, practice," said Albany High Emergency Medical Instructor Melinda Suber.  

Many of the first responder students hope to become Paramedics or Police Officers after school.
