CITY OF TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WKBW) — If you see a lot of police and fire crews at schools in the City of Tonawanda on Wednesday, don't be alarmed.

The Tonawanda City School District is working with area police and fire departments for an emergency response drill.

The drill will be held from 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the Tonawanda Middle/High School complex. The complex will be closed for public access and residents are being asked to avoid the area on Fletcher and Hinds Streets at that time.

District leaders are emphasizing this is a coordinated drill and even though there will be emergency vehicles and personnel arriving at the complex, this is a planned event.
