CU Tests Emergency Plans With Mock Shooting Drill
FAIRMONT, W. Va. (8/15/13)--Fairmont (W.Va.) FCU teamed up with the city of Bridgeport (W.Va.) Office of Emergency Services to make sure the credit union is prepared for potential threats, including armed robbers and any active shooter taking people as hostages.

The $278.8 million asset credit union tested its new emergency plans and equipment on Tuesday, with three mock scenarios for its tellers to handle.  The Bridgeport Police Department also participated in the night's drills (wboy.com Aug. 13).

Bridgeport's Office of Emergency Services designed the mock scenarios, saying the training is beneficial for both the credit union and the police department.

Emergency Services Director Shaunda Rauch told the station that the drill is important so when an actual event occurs, participants will go back to what they were trained to do. If employees haven't gone through the training, "we're learning it the hard way the first time out."
