CG event not a drill

With total respect to all participants, what was held at the Coast Guard Academy Oct. 29 was not an Active Shooter Drill - it was an Active Shooter Exercise, "Responders prepare for worst at academy drill," (Oct. 30). A drill seeks to replicate true life circumstances - an exercise involves all who are pre-invited. There is no way that 31 agencies can be at an "Active Shooter Incident" in time to have meaningful impact. Far better to limit event to impact responders and get a more valid read on preparedness.
