Active shooter drill set Wednesday at Cape hospital

Southeast Missouri Hospital in Cape Girardeau is scheduled to host an active shooter drill Wednesday morning, Sept. 7, at its 1708 Lacey location.

This is a closed drill in order to minimize disruption of daily activities. The drill is not taking place in the main hospital. Patient care will not be affected by the drill.

People in the vicinity may see hospital security staff and officers from the Cape Girardeau Police Department and Cape County Sheriff’s Department at the hospital from approximately 8:30 a.m. to noon.

Such drills are held to practice response procedures for disaster and mass casualty incidents and are routinely performed at most hospitals in the country.
