PHOTOS: Large-scale Drill involving Active Shooters held in Brick

This past weekend, the Brick Township Police Department along with local Emergency Services Divisions participated in “Operation Hot Shot 2”. This was a large scale drill that involved two active shooters in Brick Township High School during a simulated sporting event.

This was a surprise drill to test the response by first responders that included Police, EMS, Fire and the Ocean Medical Center.  Students and staff from Brick High School and Brick Memorial participated.

To keep the drill as realistic as possible students and staff played victims that included makeup and prosthetics to simulate real injuries.

Responding Officers were disarmed upon arrival and issued training guns. At that point Officers immediately entered the school to neutralize the threats and locate the injured. Tactical Brick Police EMS also entered the school to treat and remove the injured.

Injured participants were then transported to Ocean Medical Center by ambulance as if it were a real emergency.

Surrounding agencies participated and provided coverage for the town during the drill.  We would like to thank the below listed agencies for their help in making this drill possible.
