Redding, Calif. -- With so many school shootings in the United States ending in injuries, hospitals in the North State are training for the unexpected.

An unfortunate reality of mass school shootings is that many innocent people are injured and in light of the incidents that’ve happened in Redding, Shasta Medical Center now has a plan in place.

Shasta Medical Center says when the rancho tehama shooting took place --
none of the injuried parties were sent to thier hospital.
But after viewing how mercy medical handled the situation --
they now have a better plan in place.

“We have 25 bed in our warehouse and enough supplies for 25 patients,” said E.R. Manager Alicia Torge.
Mercy medical adds if they have a situation they'll send a mass text message so all staff members are working and they can help patients.

Hospital representatives added at this time they are doing drills on a weekly basis.
