Mass evacuation drill underway at Fulton County Jail | News – Atlanta, Georgia

Atlanta, Georgia 2021-10-19 15:23:00 –

Atlanta (CBS46) —A large-scale evacuation drill is currently underway at Fulton County Prison on Rice Street, near West Marietta Street in northwestern Atlanta.

There was no prior announcement to ensure security around the facility.

The exercise consists of a simulated emergency in which all visitors and civilian employees must leave the building. Prisoners are also transferred to a safe place to practice protocols for real emergencies. The evacuees are then guided to a safe place outside the hot zone.

Once the designated section of the facility is cleared and the situation is resolved, normal operation will resume in the prison.

Training that should end before 4 pm can affect traffic in the area. This is not a real emergency.
