´╗┐JULY 2018 NEWSLETTER
ACTIVE SHOOTER / RESCUE TASK FORCE TRAINING AT DUBLIN HIGH AND WELLS MIDDLE SCHOOL: From July 24-26, the Dublin Police Department and Alameda County Fire (Dublin Stations) will conduct a joint active shooter/rescue task force training in a building on the Dublin High School campus. These collaborative training operations are a critical element in improving the ability of the two agencies to work together with utmost efficiency in a challenging, complex environment - ultimately improving their ability to save lives, not only on Dublin school campuses but also at business and residential complexes across the city. Approximately 100 police and fire personnel will participate in the training and practice exercises. 

Additionally, on August 6-10, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies will conduct an active shooter response "train the trainer" event, in a building at Wells Middle School. This training is also designed to benefit public safety agencies across the country.

During these training events, the sites will have limited access to DUSD staff, families, and community members. While there may be some inconvenience associated with these activities, we're sure you will agree the benefits of supporting these training events outweigh any disruption. We appreciate your support and patience.

In September 2017, Harold M. Freiman of Lozano Smith discussed the steps to declare overcrowding, and in April 2018, Mr. Freiman expanded upon that discussion. [ More here ]

We can't guarantee we'll cover it (don't take it personally, there is a lot going on in a district with 11K students and nearly 1K staff) but we'd love to know.
