The Nebraska State Patrol is offering free active-shooter response training for any school, business or organization that requests it, a spokesman said Friday.
The training conducted by the agency teaches people how to increase their safety "in these horrific situations," Cody Thomas said in a news release.
The program, called Civilian Response to Active Killer Events, focuses on three steps: Avoid, deny and defend.
“As we’ve seen around the country, every active shooter situation can be different,” said State Patrol Training Academy Sgt. Paul Hagen. “We want to equip people with the mindset and thought process to help them realize what’s happening, be decisive, and act.”
Anyone interested in the training should contact their local troop area to request a presentation.
