VIDEO: Active-Shooter Police-Paramedic Training in Palm Beach School

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?

Active-Shooter Training for Palm Beach Public Safety Conducted this Week

By: R. Michael Brown, Civic Association Communications Director

Police_Training-03AAs 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. 

“Before this week, not every officer was trained for a solo-response to an active-shooter in a school,” said Michael Ogrodnick, Palm Beach Police Training & Community Relations Coordinator. “This is what we are training for this week, along with training to get paramedics inserted into an active scene safely, and protect them, so they can do their work to save lives.”
