Active Shooter Exercise at RTHS: Saturday 10/19

Residents of Rochelle,

The Rochelle Emergency Management Committee, in cooperation with Rochelle School Districts 212 & 231 will be conducting a (MOCK) active shooter training exercise on Saturday October 19, 2019 at Rochelle Township High School.

The exercise will involve law enforcement and fire/ems assets from Rochelle and surrounding jurisdictions along with school staff, administration and City of Rochelle Administration. The exercise will begin around 9:00 am and conclude at approximately 2:00 pm, but you will see people setting up as early as 6:00 am. While you will see vehicles and personnel moving about the campus during the exercise, all the engagements of law enforcement agents with mock suspects will be inside the building.

What does this mean to you? As this is a training exercise, and for everyone’s safety, we are asking anyone who is not involved in the exercise to stay off campus for the duration of the exercise. The school and campus will be locked down during the exercise and we will have signs, barricades and personnel around the grounds to insure everyone’s safety.
