SWAT teams headed to a local middle school on Friday, but it was thankfully all just a drill.

The FOX 5 Drone flew over the full-scale SWAT exercise at Booth Middle School on Friday. Peachtree City Police was joined by Fayetteville and Fayette County law enforcement to practice with teachers and students on how to handle an active-shooter situation.

Police said they tried to make the exercise as accurate as possible, even blaring unnerving alarms in the hallway.

Police combined the training with demonstrations on police work, showing how a police K-9 brings down a bad guy.

In addition to active shooting training, the school also conducted bus evacuations and tornado drills.
