How to Respond to an Active Shooter on Campus?
Students receive emergency training from NYPD detective.
Back in the day we had our requisite fire drills and we were prepared. Unfortunately, the world is a scarier place and there have been too many school shootings. To be prepared for any scenario, LCM brought in an NYPD detective who gives active shooter training to educate students for such a scenario. LCM students learned about getting out of sight and out of range, that unlike a fire where you want to be down and out here you want to be up and away, individuals vs. groups, and hiding for a prolonged period of time. The lecture was interactive and engaging, but this is one lecture we hope will remain purely hypothetical.
