FARMINGTON, N.M. -- An active shooter emergency drill will take place at the San Juan College Farmington campus on this morning. It's a training exercise for the school and for the Farmington Police Department.


It's scheduled for 9 a.m. at the San Juan College High School and San Juan College Library, police officials said. In order to recreate a crisis situation, an armed suspect will fire blank rounds in the courtyard outside the high school.

Officials expect the drill to take roughly 10 minutes.

"Personnel from San Juan College and Farmington Police Department have been planning for this drill for several weeks," said Taft Tracy, a captain with the police department. "The drill will be very lifelike and will allow the various agencies and departments to prepare for a possible crisis situation."

For more information, contact Rhonda Schaefer at (505) 566-3087 or Kenneth Hibner at (505) 566-3050.
