****UPDATE****

The Sheriff's Office is asking that people not share this particular Facebook posting as it is being recirculated now from school to school. The posting is a confirmed hoax and we do not want this post to distract the public and especially our children from legitimate threats which may occur. We want to thank the student who came forward early this morning and informed their school resource deputy of the Facebook post. As always, please remember, If you see something, say something.

-Original Post Below-

The Sumter County Sheriff's Office is aware of the recent post (pictured) that is going viral across the United States from Ray Andres. Detectives are investigating however at this time it appears to be out of Ohio and does not appear to be a credible threat to our schools. We will keep the public updated as we have more information.

Wildwood, FL -
Sumter County Fire & EMS, Sumter County Sheriff’s Office, The Villages Public Safety, American Medical Response, Aircare, and Shandscair will participate in an Emergency Preparedness Exercise at Lake Panasoffkee Recreation Park next week.

Approximately, 40 first responders will test their skills responding to and managing an emergency with multiple causalities. Sumter County Emergency Management Division is sponsoring the exercise to better prepare first responders for an incident that could overwhelm local capabilities.

The exercise will also test the capability of the new Sheriff’s Office Communication Center and Fire & EMS Dispatch Center in Wildwood.

“Recent events demonstrate the need to prepare ourselves,” said David Casto, Sumter County Emergency Management Director, “This exercise gives participants an opportunity to learn and practice together in a very challenging but controlled environment.”

Over 60 volunteers from Wildwood Middle High School, South Sumter High School, The Villages High School, The Villages Community Emergency Response Team, Lake Technical College, and Sumter County Medical Reserve Corps will assist in the exercise as actors.

The exercise will be conducted on Thursday, February 22, 2018, between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. The Lake Panasoffkee Recreation Park will be closed during this time.

There will be signs posted on County Road 459 and North County Road 470 specifying that an exercise is in progress. Residents should be aware that they may hear sirens and see public safety vehicles engaged in the area for the exercise.

Move Over, Florida!

Florida law requires you to Move Over a lane — for stopped law enforcement, emergency, sanitation, utility service vehicles and tow trucks or wreckers.

If you can’t move over — or when on a two-lane road — slow to a speed that is 20 mph less than the posted speed limit.

With Hawaii signing on in 2012, all 50 States have "Move Over" laws to protect law enforcement officers and other first responders stopped on our Nation's roads. Yet only 71% of the public are aware of these laws, and traffic-related incidents continue to be the number one cause of death among on-duty law enforcement officers
