Active Shooter Training to occur at The Evergreen State College
Details: On Wednesday, July 23rd 2014, The Evergreen State College will be hosting Active Shooter Response Training involving multiple Law Enforcement and Fire Agencies from within Thurston County. The training, which is a joint effort between The Evergreen State College Police Services and the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office, will focus on the collaboration necessary to effectively respond to an active shooter(s) incident. The college will also be testing its own emergency response protocols and communications channels.
While the training should not affect traffic around the campus, neighbors should be aware that police and fire vehicles and personnel will be on campus for the training, which will run from approximately 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The event is part of a larger, county-wide effort to increase preparedness that will include additional training opportunities for first responders and two informational forums for families and community members. Those community forums will take place in September.
