WHITE PLAINS – In response to what was described as “an accidental activation of the Burke [Rehabilitation Hospital] emergency response system,” White Plains police nonetheless dispatched a full response team to the scene in anticipation of a shooter scenario.

Hospital staff reportedly “followed the protocols for response in such situations that had been developed in collaboration with the WPPD. At no time was anyone in danger. There were no injuries of any type and at no time were Burke patients in jeopardy.”
