Cox South Holding Armed Intruder Drill Monday Night

CoxHealth is wanting the public to know of an Armed Intruder Drill that is taking place at the Cox South campus on Monday evening.

The drill is a joint effort between CoxHealth and multiple emergency response departments: Springfield Police and Fire Departments, Greene County Sheriff’s Office, Missouri State Highway Patrol, and other public safety officials.

CoxHealth is wanting the public to know about the drill because there will be a high number of emergency response vehicles at the CoxSouth campus from around 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Monday, June 17, and that there is no actual threat to the facilities.

This is the second time CoxHealth has carried out an Armed Intruder Exercise, after a successful exercise last year at Cox Branson.
