Weekly Update
Active Assailant/Shooter Events

The Country was rocked last week with the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. While prevention of these events in the future is key, being prepared to respond to these events is important also. North Shore Fire/Rescue regularly trains with the seven local law enforcement agencies, area fire/rescue providers and schools as part of it's preparation. Over the last several years, North Shore emergency responders updated our response plans and training and made additional investments in needed equipment.

As recently as last week, Department Chief Officers attended an Active Shooter Incident Management Class in Oak Creek that was offered by the FBI.
