Vigo County School personnel underwent active shooter training Monday afternoon.
The session shows teachers and staff what can happen in just three minutes if a person with a gun decides to enter a school and do the unthinkable.
During the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary that shooter had three minutes before police arrived and by then significant damage had been done.
The session was held at Honey Creek Middle School and in just three minutes the officer who played the role of the shooter covered most of the first floor and the first person shot was the school police officer.
The training is an effort to prepare teachers to keep students out of harm’s way and show them what needs to be done in a matter of minutes.
These types of sessions are held throughout the year at different locations throughout the Wabash Valley.
