Active Shooter Training in Lancaster County School

LANCASTER COUNTY, S.C. (CN2 NEWS)  Law enforcement agencies are using a school for realistic active shooter training.  In Lancaster County, this is the first time so many agencies are joining forces for active shooter training.  Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office PIO Doug Barfield says the times call for it.

“We read and see on the media all the time about events that occurred at places like this,” says Barfield, “It’s just a great opportunity to get all of the people who would be responding to such an incident.”

The training is organized by the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, plus the Lancaster County Fire and Rescue Team, EMS and the City of Lancaster Fire Department. It’s happening two days a week for three weeks at Van Wyck Elementary School.  By the end of June, more than 200 first responders will be trained.
