ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. — St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office and St. Johns County Fire Rescue are partnering for an active shooter/mass casualty event training drills this week.


Personnel involved will meet at Freedom Cross Academy from June 10-13 for the training exercise.

SJSO said that communities nearby will experience more traffic and emergency vehicles near the school. Likewise, residents might hear sirens and simulated gunfire.

All distress noises heard at the school this week are part of training and not an actual event.
