Though the meeting at White Rock Fire Station No. 3 looked like just another casual get together between town officials, it was anything but.
County, emergency and school officials met in White Rock Tuesday to dress rehearse for an event no one hopes ever happens; a mass shooting at Los Alamos High School. Officials are calling it “Operation Hilltopper.”
In October, the school is going to be ground zero for the town-wide emergency drill, a drill designed to test for weak spots in the way Los Alamos responds to a mass casualty event.
The White Rock meeting was about smoothing out the details before the main event Oct. 8.
