CARTER COUNTY, Tenn. -

Get ready for a full scale emergency at a Carter County school next week.

The Carter County Emergency Management Agency tells us it's an exercise to insure a quicker and more knowledgeable response, in the event of a real emergency within the school district.

The drill is a cooperative effort between the Carter County School District, the city of Elizabethton, and local emergency responders.
