HURLEY — An alarm to alert law enforcement of a lockdown situation at Hurley K-12 School was tripped accidentally on Tuesday, bringing agencies from Wisconsin and Michigan to the campus.
“We did not have a lockdown today,” said Kevin Genisot, the administrator for Hurley School District.
A technician was working with wiring and in the process had inadvertently tripped the “panic button” which sent an alert to the Iron County Sheriff’s Department that a lockdown situation was occurring on the campus at 10:26 a.m., he said.
