Ready for worst

JOHNSTOWN – Fulton-Montgomery Community College’s administration, faculty, staff and campus public safety department, along with local law-enforcement officers and the Greater Amsterdam Volunteer Ambulance Corps., participated in three active-shooter drills on campus Wednesday.

The drills were staged so the campus and authorities could practice responses to campus shooters and be prepared in the case of an actual shooter situation.

“It’s important for our employees to know how to react to a violent situation and how to be leaders to our students; this is what today was all about,” FMCC President Dustin Swanger said in a news release Wednesday. “We hope we never have to put this day of practice to use.”
