Cancer Center To Hold Active Shooter Exercise

FAYETTEVILLE – Cape Fear Valley, Cumberland County Emergency Services, Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, Fayetteville Fire Department and Police Department will hold a joint active shooter exercise this weekend.

The exercise will take place Sunday, Aug. 26, from 9 – 11 a.m., at Cape Fear Valley Cancer Treatment & CyberKnife Center. Cape Fear Valley visitors and patients will be notified beforehand. The Cancer Center is closed on weekends, so the exercise will not interfere with patient care.

Officials are holding the exercise to test the “Community Active Shooter Response Plan,” a joint policy between public safety agencies in Fayetteville and Cumberland County. The plan established standardized guidelines for operating at incidents with potential or ongoing active violence.

Media wanting to attend the training session should contact Donnie Byers, Cape Fear Valley Public Relations Director, at 910-615-6445 or
