The exercise was part of a districtwide emergency- preparedness drill test that put the schools to the test, conducting a simulated response to a hypothetical, large-scale emergency. The operation at Burbank High began with an emergency alarm, and then the students were told to evacuate their classrooms and head for the football field, the designated emergency location site.
