Parkview to conduct active shooter simulation
(November 12, 2012) – Parkview staff, local police and other emergency responders will participate in a crisis simulation at Parkview Randallia on Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 3 p.m. The training simulation will further prepare Parkview staff to respond to an emergency situation involving an armed gunman threatening hospital safety on the Parkview Randallia Campus.

Staff members and Parkview Randallia patients and their family members will be notified of the simulation multiple times the day of the training exercise.
