Officers and Firefighters work together to prepare for the worse

IMG 1536Active shooters and terrorist events like those seen at San Bernardino and Paris have tested tactics developed in the wake of Columbine. These tactics were developed to end situations where someone is actively killing people quickly. The Sioux City Police Department (SCPD) had been training their officers in these tactics and refining them for over 10 years. As part of that trend, members of the Sioux City Police Department and Sioux City Fire and Rescue (SCFR) came together at the Orpheum Theatre on Jan. 13, to work out how they would respond to an incident of an active killer together.

“This is the evolution of rapid response to active killers,” said the SCPD’s Lt. Rex Mueller, who helped organize the training scenario teaming officers with firefighters with the purpose of rescuing victims.
