HOPE – A multi-agency crisis exercise will be conducted on the Hope High School campus on Monday, Aug. 6, the Hope Police Department and Hope Public Schools announced today.
Participation in the “active” exercise will be limited to first response, law enforcement, and HPS personnel.
The exercise is required by law and school policy to test the effectiveness of HPS crisis planning, and to provide crisis response training to first responders and law enforcement.
