Only a drill

Visitors to the QEH were caught off guard this evening when they turned up at the health care institution and found law enforcement officers all over the compound. They were eventually put at ease when news spread that it was only a drill. Here, visitors and staff converge outside the hospital compound after being refused entry to the building.

    Could have warned all prior that exercises were underway

      you dont warn people about a drill, the point of a drill is to simulate an actual incident to monitor how it would play out and plan for what you learn from it.

      Fair enough but meanwhile you create confusion and panic for staff and visitors which is needlessly my

      Robert Holloway confusion is what would occur in a real event so you need to see the ways to stop it from happening again

      So let me see, a drill occurs and we are asking that the authorities warn us…okaaaay….when it is for real, the perpetrators will come to our houses and sit down with us, and lay out a point by point plan exactly how it will be done.

      I cannot believe the comments I am reading….Stupse!!!!
