PHOENIX — If you witness a disaster drill at a Phoenix-area high school on Friday morning, don’t panic.
Mountain Ridge High School in Glendale will conduct its annual mock disaster drill from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Friday, according to a press release.
The press release said that those in the area will notice “increased activity” during these hours, including fire trucks, ambulances and a medical evacuation helicopter that will circle the school before landing on the football field.
School officials said the drill is an “exceptional educational experience” for high school students who will need to know how to respond in an emergency.
