CHICO, Calif. - Chico State held an emergency drill on September 17 for students and staff.

More than one-thousand students were evacuated from Tehama, Butte and Plumas Halls.

This is the first drill of its scale done at the university with two more planned for the month.

"Is time to think in a larger scale disaster or emergency that will impact the campus that may require the evacuation of multiple buildings and if we do not practice we will not be prepared," said the school's emergency preparedness manager, Yvette Streeter.

A drill is planned for next year with the full evacuation of the campus, all at once.

It took just five minutes for everyone to clear the buildings.
