Disaster drill planned April 1

-A A +A

Harriman High School will host a disaster drill on April 1.

This mock disaster will involve students from three Roane County schools: Oliver Springs High School, Roane County High School, and Harriman High School.

The simulation will show the aftermath of a mock natural disaster, such as a tornado, an earthquake or an airplane crash.

Many students will portray roles as injured and deceased victims.

Student makeup artists have been trained to create faux burns, scratches, protruding objects and even brain matter.

Emergency personnel in Harriman will treat this drill in the same manner as a real disas-ter.

Hazardous materials workers, emergency medical personnel, police officers and firefighters will be involved in the drill, which will take place in Harriman.
