Church members and leaders receive training on how to react during a mass shooting

CAMDEN COUNTY, N.C. – A church is supposed to be a safe place, but recent events have proved that violence can happen anywhere.

Thursday night the Camden County Sheriff Office in North Carolina held a training session for church members and church leaders.

It’s a stomach-turning scene witnessed time and time again in cities throughout the United States: Shots fired, mass chaos and law enforcement rushing the scene to eliminate the threat.

Mass shootings have been seen at concerts, clubs, schools and even churches.

Pastor Wayne Wood leads the Wesley United Methodist Church in Old Trap, North Carolina.

“Even though overall it’s very small, everybody in the community knows everybody, still it could happen,” said Wood.

Thursday Wood attended the training session hosted by Chief Deputy of Camden County Sheriff Office Rodney Meads.

“Fifteen years ago, who would have ever thought this would be a subject that we needed to cover,” said Meads.

He stressed to a handful

Mass shooting training unfortunate but necessary

Do you know what you’d do in the case of a mass shooting?

As we approach the two-year anniversary of the Excel Shooting in February, Harvey County Emergency Management continues to try to bring the lessons learned that day and the months after to the community.

They’ve met with law enforcement, schools, and members of local government. They met with churches a few weeks ago to discuss dealing with such an event. They’re doing a talk to Newton Chamber members on Wednesday, Feb. 21.

This represents a good and effective use of government resources.

The training doesn’t represent lip service to make the public feel safe, as the duck and cover drills of the Cold War did.

It instead offers real, tested and active strategies to deal with a mass shooter. Such strategies involve determining when to hide, when to flee, and when to do something to fight back.

Such strategies replace some of the earlier

Redmond police host mass shooting response training

In the wake of the largest mass shooting in the the country’s history, local law enforcement hosted a workshop on surviving a shooting in Redmond on Dec. 14.

The workshop was run by the Redmond Police Department and gave people information on how to better survive a mass shooting than the traditional “sit and shelter” advice.

According to FBI statistics, there has been an average of 16 mass shootings a year over the last seven years, with the majority occurring in a business, school or university.

Around 60 percent ended before police arrived.

Traditional responses to shootings prior to 1999 been to lock down and shelter during shootings, but police said they are trying to expand the responses people can undertake during shootings.

The failure of a simple shelter in place policy was shown to have disastrous effects even during the Columbine High School shooting in 1999 when students who hid under tables became easy

Concert-goers who escaped Vegas mass shooting get ‘stop the bleed’ training at UCI Medical Center

After Vegas tragedy, active shooter training takes on new significance

People ducked and froze Sunday on the Las Vegas fairgrounds, news video shows, creating easier targets. Interrupt a shooter’s OODA with chaotic motion, Mertz said, and the loop must start anew. Aggressively messing with a shooter — a runner brushing against him, throwing a pen, frenetic motion — resets the loop repeatedly. Research shows fewer people will die, Mertz said.

CNM students get hands-on training at mock mass shooting | KRQE …

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Students on CNM’s campus spent the morning getting some hands-on training.

About 200 students from CNM’s healthcare programs responded to a mock mass shooting. The students were able to treat people and work alongside real professionals. The exercise gives the students a chance to apply what they learn in the classroom to real life situations.

“The classroom and lab part–they learn what they have to learn–but then when they go to their clinicals they work with real patients and a lot of times you can’t do things with real patients that you’ve learned, but we can simulate that,” said Richard Gentile, CNM Simulation Center.

The exercise included a medical helicopter and ambulances making trips to and from medical labs, which served as emergency rooms.
