STRONGSVILLE, Ohio — The Strongsville Police Department will be holding a comprehensive safety drill at Strongsville High School on Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., a news release from the department said.

This is a planned event between Strongsville City Schools, police, fire and EMS services along with mutual aid partners. The safety force asks individuals to avoid the area during the scheduled time, as there will be lots of emergency vehicles and simulated scenarios taking place.

  • North Royalton Police & Fire Emergency Services
  • Middleburg Hts Police & Fire Emergency Services
