Joint Training Exercise Wednesday and Friday

Active shooter training has become an important topic of discussion in recent years for universities and workplaces across the country.

 

As part of ongoing emergency preparedness efforts, TCU Police, MedStar Mobile Healthcare, the Fort Worth Fire Department and Fort Worth Police Department will conduct joint training using an active shooter scenario from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 16 at Martin-Moore Hall.

The training may include role-playing of injured people and simulation of emergency vehicle arrival and departure using sirens.

 

“TCU works closely with the Fort Worth police and fire departments and actively trains with them to ensure we are prepared in the event of an emergency,” said Adrian Andrews, assistant vice chancellor for Public Safety. “Training simulations like this help us review and test protocols to identify opportunities for improvement.”

 

TCU Police will use barricades to cordon off the area, and participants will park in the Worth Hills Parking Garage. Signage will clearly mark that the area is in use for training exercises.

 

TCU Police and Fort Worth SWAT also will conduct drills from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, May 18, inside Amon G. Carter Stadium.
