Notre Dame campus holding emergency response training

Notre Dame, Ind. Notre Dame security teamed up today with area emergency response crews for a training drill on campus.

The first part of the two day drill took place Monday when campus police, along with area law enforcement focused on what to do if there was ever an active shooter.

Today, Memorial Hospital, Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center and the American Red Cross took part in a simulated effort to care for victims.

The training is held every year in a different building on campus.

“One of the things that simulations have to is you have police, fire, EMS protocols and you have to make sure when they overlay each other, that there are no gaps,” said Mike Seamon, ND Campus Safety Assistant Director. “So the first responders have to stay safe as well. You don't want to escalate a situation and make it worse.”

This year, it was at the Pasquerilla Center.
