Brief: Active shooter training

A one-hour active shooter training will begin at noon on Oct. 8 at the Faculty and Staff Center, which is building 600.

Pierce College and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will be hosting the training that aims to teach students how to respond when an active shooter is present.

With the nationwide anxiety over active shooter threats, it is important for people to be aware of what to do in a life-threatening situation. 

Students within LACCD and all of California most likely have little exposure and experience with guns, so it is crucial to know what to do if a weapon is being carried by an unpredictable shooter.

The Sheriff’s department will discuss and demonstrate options to utilize during an actual active shooter incident and help recognize signs of potential workplace and classroom violence.

Knowing simple red flags and suspicious activity can make the difference in saving multiple lives. 

There will be lunch served to the first 75 people who register using the link, https://www.eventbrite.com/e/los-angeles-pierce-college-active-shooter-training-tickets-74714100887.

Accommodations will be available by  contacting William Ramirez at (213) 891-2071 or ramirew@laccd.edu no later than seven 7 business days prior to the event.
