Thursday, Aug. 13, 2015 — Taking a proactive approach, local law enforcement and emergency agencies took part in an in-depth active assailant training.
Complete with life-like wounds and stressful situations, the Susanville Police Department, in coordination with multiple agencies including Lassen County Public Health, took command of the Lassen High School campus Tuesday, Aug. 4 to partake in a hands-on training that benefited emergency responders throughout the county should a school shooting ever happen locally.
“I am very pleased with the outcome of our training,” said Susanville Police Chief Tom Downing. “I’m impressed with how our community comes together.”
The second annual day-long training, put together by Susanville Police Department detective Nate Horton, school resource officer Terra Avilla and Lassen County Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Christi Myers, hosted break-out panels and two active shooter scenarios, complete with reunification training.
