Active Shooter Training targets RCC

Written by: Crystal Olmedo 

Free training designed to inform participants on strategies that can be used to survive in the instance that there is an active shooter on campus, will be held Nov. 20 in the Digital Library Auditorium 121.

The training will be hosted by RCC Safety Committee, Student Services and Library from 1:30-3:30 p.m.

Information including how to deter, detect, delay and possibly defeat an active shooter will be addressed.

Trainers will discuss the lessons learned from different crucial incidents on school campuses.

The steps of a campus lockdown will be identified as well as critical preparations and response techniques for faculty and students.

Parents and community members from Riverside Community College District and other colleges, universities and K-12 educational institutions are invited to attend.

Those interested in attending who are not part of an educational institution can contact Sherry Colgan Stone, district safety and emergency planning manager by phone at 951-222-8566 or via email Sherry.Stone@rccd.edu.
