LLCC Police Department to offer Practical Response to Active Shooters training

The LLCC Police Department will be offering four sessions of its Practical Response to Active Shooters training in October. Sessions will be held at 9:30 a.m.  and 1:30 p.m. on both Oct. 9 and 16. Training lasts approximately two hours, and is open to all LLCC faculty, staff and students. There is a maximum of 25 students per training session, so pre-registration is required. Email to register.

If you ever found yourself in an active shooter event, would you know what to do? As with any emergency situation, prior thought and planning play an immense role in our individual response to these highly stressful incidents.

Presented by members of the LLCC Police Department, this hands-on training will provide you with options regarding what to do during an active shooter incident, teach you how to do them, and then give you an opportunity to actually practice these newly learned skills in a supportive, non-stressful environment.

Think before you print tip–Make copies as needed

Make copies “as needed” rather than in large batches at one time. Frequently, extra copies of important internal documents become outdated quickly and only end up being discarded. Making copies as needed can reduce this problem significantly.
