You may have heard a loud explosion if you were out in the western suburbs Friday, but it was all part of school disaster drill.

The large-scale disaster drill was held at Geneva Middle School South.

Several hundred district employees participated.

The exercise is supposed to test the ability to safely evacuate students and reunite them with their parents during an actual emergency, however no students or parents participated in this drill.
