Emergency exercise today at Seymour High School

Jackson County Emergency Management Agency and Office of Homeland Security will conduct a full-scale exercise from 9 a.m. to noon today at Seymour High School.

The exercise will involve mock injuries, an evacuation of the school and relocation of students.

The public should not be alarmed by all of the emergency vehicles at the school.

The county will utilize the Everbridge mass notification system to inform residents of the exercise. That system sends texts, phone messages and emails to those who are signed up for the free service.

Residents may sign up for the Jackson County Citizen Alert program at jacksoncounty.in.gov or by calling Jackson County EMA at 812-358-6110.
