Emergency response vehicles descended upon Galt High School on Wednesday as teachers and other staff responded to a campus emergency. But it wasn't real.

The annual emergency preparedness drill was a joint effort among the California Emergency Management Agency, Galt Police Department and Galt High School, along with other local and county jurisdictions.

All schools within California are required to have, and exercise, emergency plans to ensure the safety of students and staff.

Wednesday's 40-minute planned exercise focused on emergency response, critical decisions and notifications, as well as communication and response from other first responders including fire and police, according to Galt Police Lt. Jim Uptegrove.

It was a minimum day for students, so the exercise was primarily for school staff, he said.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
