LAS VEGAS -- Gunfire and sirens rang out in a North Las Vegas industrial neighborhood Friday. It was part of an emergency preparedness drill simulating a workplace shooting.
The drill came in the wake of 2010's federal courthouse shooting and last month's shooting in Tucson, Arizona. MedicWest teamed up with North Las Vegas fire and police to create a realistic drill that began with the sounds of shooting.
"It's something that all businesses need to be prepared for and need to make sure they have a plan in place. There is no business anywhere within this community immune from having something like this happened," said Chad Henry, operations manager with MedicWest.
