Drowning Call Tuesday Was Only a Drill

Though it was only a drill, what happened yesterday at a local pool had some neighbors worked up. The Adair County Ambulance District, the Kirksville Fire and Police Departments, 911 Dispatch, and Northeast Regional Medical Center participated in drill yesterday that simulated a pediatric drowning. Participants say the drill went like clockwork, and they are confident if the real thing happened the situation would be handled as smoothly.
