Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014 — Gunshots and screams resonated throughout the halls of Lassen High School in order to train local law enforcers and first responders in case the inconceivable were to happen.
On Monday, Aug. 4, the Susanville Police Department spearheaded an in-depth active shooter training, and invited all local agencies to participate in, train and experience what would happen if an armed assailant were to attack students at a local school.
“We wanted to train them as realistically as possible … to better prepare all of us,” said Chief of Police Tom Downing. “We’ve never had this type of training of this magnitude.”
