|Yancey County Schools in coordination with the Sheriff’s Office conducted a rapid response training day Friday at Cane River Middle School. This training involved staff from all schools across the county as well as several local law enforcement agencies, emergency responders, and fire departments and the drill simulated a shooter at the school. The scenario provided immeasurable training for law enforcement and school staff personnel. Friday was a teacher’s work day in Yancey County and school was not in session so no students were at school during the Training Exercise. In coming days local law enforcement agencies will look at the operation from different angles and use the information to better protect schools in Yancey County.
