"I am so appreciative of the commitment and dedication of our local public safety leadership," said Dr. Chapman.

Frank R. Bedoe Sr., CCCC Director of Campus Security and Safety, noted that the drill tested the college's procedures, the skills of the responding emergency personnel, and how they work together as a cohesive unit.
"I would like to thank Dr. Chapman for her support as well as the faculty/staff who volunteered their time to participate in this important exercise. I would also like to thank the following emergency responders -- Sanford Police Department, N.C. State Highway Patrol, Sanford Fire Department, and Emergency Medical Services at Central Carolina Hospital," said Bedoe. "I would also thank the Lee County Emergency Services personnel as they also were involved in the planning for this exercise. I would like to give Captain W.C. Genthe, of the Sanford Police Department, a special thanks as he helped coordinate the emergency responders as well as overseeing the actual exercise."
