Summit Mall in Fairlawn to host mock casualty drill in wake of Boston Marathon bombings

FAIRLAWN, Ohio - Summit Mall in Fairlawn will host a mock casualty drill prompted by the Boston Marathon bombings to see how emergency staff could handle such a situation.

Mayor Bill Roth tells Patch.com that the drill would give police and firefighters "some training in handling a bombing, active shooter or other critical situation."

The drill will most likely happen on a Sunday morning sometime in October or November.

The last time a similar drill was done was in the 1990s.
