Altoona Schools Emergency Drill


An active shooter disaster drill will take place from 8am until noon today at the Altoona Area School District Campus.

Officials say traffic will be congested on 6th Avenue from 17th Street to 12th Street…and motorists can expect road closings and detours. Avoid this area if at all possible.

You may hear the sound of gunshots and see numerous emergency vehicles on site, but this is only a drill.
