    WARWICK-Don't panic - it's only a drill. The Warwick Valley Central School District, in conjunction with the Warwick Fire Department, Police Department, Ambulance Corps, St. Anthony Community Hospital, Boy and Girl Scouts, parent and school volunteers, will hold a Bus Accident Safety Drill on Sunday morning, Oct. 17, near the junction of Sanfordville Road and Bairds Lane. Thomas Gustainis, Warwick School District Assistant Superintendent for Business, said, "Residents should not be alarmed if they happen upon this mock bus/truck crash scene. This is only a drill." Drills of this nature are essential to develop and test school and community response personnel and procedures to protect the health and safety of staff and students in the event of a real-life bus accident, said Gustainis
