Clackamas Fire Trains with Law Enforcement for Coordinated Active Shooter Responses (Photo) - 03/12/18

Last week, Clackamas Fire District #1 kicked off two weeks of scenario-based training aimed at improving coordinated responses to active shooter incidents. The training, which brought together firefighters and police officers from Clackamas Fire, Oregon City Police and Milwaukie Police, was designed to be as realistic as possible. Those taking part in the training don't know the details of the scenario they will encounter and a team of volunteers act as victims - both which help increase the realism of the drill.

In this particular training scenario, which takes place at Concord Elementary in Milwaukie (a school building no longer being used by the school district), firefighters and police officers respond to a call for shots fired at the school. Law enforcement officers secure the scene and neutralize the threat while Clackamas Firefighter/Paramedics work with them to quickly remove injured victims and provide critical, life-saving care immediately.

Training like this is incredibly valuable as it gives firefighters and police officers an opportunity to work together in a learning environment. The active shooter training will continue through the end of this week.
