Here in Erie, the efforts to prepare for a possible school shooting will take the form of an active shooter drill for one district this weekend. 

The Warren County School District is set to hold its annual active shooter drill this coming Saturday, August 6.

The district is announcing the drill so those in the area are not taken by surprise by the presence of emergency vehicles at the school. 

Roughly 60-members of law enforcement and other first responders are expected to be on hand.

They'll train in the morning, then do the actual active shooter drill in the afternoon.

Warren school officials say it's all part of their ongoing efforts to ensure the safety of its students and staff.

It is recommended that the public avoid the surrounding area that day.
