Not the first of its kind but a school bus terror drill will occur shortly in Texas.

More information will be given after it happens.

There will be a simulated explosion.

No link? Is it being run by state or federal government?

Doesn't hurt to have terror drills just like you have them for tornadoes and earthquakes.

Would like to see a link.

I know I for one agree with that govenor, or mayor or whatever from AZ. If you see fema conducting a drill, you better run like hell.

Is that one where the supposed terrorists are fanatical home-schoolers?

This just hit the wires within the last hour.

There were no advertised federal agencies involved. Municipal law enforcement, emergency services, and students from two magnet programs participated.

This sounds like an excellent idea and a great educational experience for the students!

I don't know..  maybe it's a good idea...  but really,  how many school buses do we think are going to be 'terrorized'?      My only real concern with this is how it might affect the kids.
Surely the whole idea would frighten them ...  necessarily?

I think it was a positive experience for the kids, and I doubt any of them were frightened any more than I was frightened when I watched a drunk driving accident emergency response demonstration in highschool.

I think its a horrible idea. The statistical odds of ever having to deal with such a thing are next to nothing. This is only to beat it into the brains of children that they need to be afraid of terrorists.

Or, perhaps it wasnt that. Perhaps "The exercise was designed to give students a chance to put into practice the skills they've learned throughout the year [...]"

Yeah.  We shouldn't teach our children important life saving skills such as CPR, dialing 911, etc.../sarcasm

Well, that brings back memories of drills at school during the 1950s where we practiced taking cover under our desk.
