Ordinarily, the halls of Trumbull High School are pretty quiet during the last days of June. On Tuesday, June 25, however, the building was alive with the squawks of walkie-talkies and the boots of emergency personnel as area first responders took part in a multi-town emergency-preparedness exercise.
The event involved a simulated anthrax exposure at the Stratford Metro-North station. Should the public ever be truly exposed to such a deadly substance, Trumbull High would spring into action as an emergency medical dispensary. The exercise provided emergency response people with a dress rehearsal of sorts.
