Plano PD Active Shooter Preparedness Training / PTA General Assembly Meeting
Carpenter Middle School PTA will be hosting Plano Police Department’s Active Shooter Preparedness training in our cafeteria. We will have a brief PTA General Assembly meeting at 6:15 PM with the training to begin immediately afterward. This event is free and open to the community. Please RSVP here.
Active shooter incidents cannot be predicted but they can be prepared for. The City of Plano has trained its police, fire, dispatch, and other emergency personnel how to respond effectively to active shooter incidents. We will be empowering the public to respond to and survive an active shooter incident. Participants will receive instruction on what to do should they ever find themselves in an active shooter incident and how to utilize the “Avoid, Deny, Defend” and “Run, Hide, Fight” strategies. Training and educating the public on active shooter response is a critical component of preparing the entire community and reducing the loss of life when an active shooter attacks.
