See my latest weekly news broadcast that leads off with active-shooter police and paramedic training in the Palm Beach Public School. Officers are trained to go in alone and take out the threat and not wait for backup that’s on the way. Yes, the officers did catch some rounds from the bad guys. Would you have the guts to go?

As we get ready to kick off a new school year, first responders from the Town of Palm Beach trained this week for an active-shooter situation at Palm Beach Public School. It included police, firefighters, and paramedics.
