Dramatic gun safety lesson at Delaware County, Pa. school
DARBY BOROUGH, Pa. - February 15, 2013 (WPVI) -- Some Delaware County middle school students learned what to do if someone brings a gun to school.
Darby Borough Police officers staged the emergency drill at Penn Wood Middle School Friday.
The officers slowly made their way through the hallways with guns drawn, as if there were a real threat in the building.
Principal Brian Wilson said the exercise was also a good learning experience for teachers.
"Like all schools, we have an emergency plan," Wilson told Action News. "But it's an awesome opportunity to have the professionals take a look at our emergency plan and critique it so we can make changes. And a chance for my teachers to get an opportunity to see what these professionals do every day."
Delaware County emergency response teams also helped out with the drill.
