City of Lewiston and Nez Perce County’s Emergency Management Coordinator, Mark
Hurd, will be hosting an active shooter exercise at Lewis-Clark State College (LCSC) on
Friday, September 15, 2023. The exercise aims to simulate the emergency response to
an active shooter incident on campus, ensuring a coordinated, timely, and effective
response and recovery in the event of a major incident.
The training exercise is a collaborative effort involving various public agencies, including
the City of Lewiston Police Department, Fire Department, Public Information Office, and
Risk Management Office; Nez Perce County Sheriff’s Office and Coroner; City of
Clarkston Police Department and Fire Department; Idaho State Police; Lewis-Clark
State College administration and staff; St. Joseph Regional Medical Center
administration and staff; Tri-State Memorial Hospital administration and staff; Idaho
Office of Emergency Management, and Idaho Public Health North Central District.
In preparation for the exercise, a second press release with more information will be
distributed in the weeks leading up to the event. Additionally, public information
materials will be shared with neighbors in the exercise area, students, and staff. There
will be a heavy presence of law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical services
during the exercise, so it is essential to emphasize that the event is just a drill to avoid
any confusion. The exercise area will be closed to the general public.
If you have any questions related to the exercise or media involvement, please reach
out to City of Lewiston Public Information Officer Carol Maurer using the contact
information provided above.
