Over several hours Wednesday morning, July 24, Bolivar’s emergency responders came together to imagine the worst case scenario, so they can bring their best when local students and teachers might need them most.

Around three months in the making, the Bolivar Police Department, Bolivar City Fire Department, Bolivar Emergency Management, Polk County Central Dispatch, Polk County Emergency Management, Citizens Memorial Hospital Emergency Services, Bolivar R-1 School District, Polk County Sheriff’s Office, Missouri State Highway Patrol and local volunteers came together to put their skills to the test in an active shooter training drill.
