Fox News shared a behind the scenes look at what goes on during Active Shooter training drills.

Unfortunately we live in a time where Active Shooter training drills are a process that many of our law enforcement officials and school officials have to go through.

On Sunday March 25th, Laura Ingle of Fox News gave a look behind the scenes of what goes on during an active shooter drill. The cameras were following Hudson Valley police officers and EMS as they ran through a mock active shooter scenario in Poughkeepsie.

Arlington Medics can be seen tending to mock victims while officers lead and follow the group to safety.


The purpose of this training is to "bring rapid triage to victims under the protection of armed officers" Ingle reports.

The National Center for Security and Preparedness has hosted training sessions throughout the years that focus on training officers to keep their attention focused to the threat while EMS works with the victim.
