Brad Kitchen of Fort Sherman Academy teaches the teachers of St. Maries how they can best protect their students in an active shooter situation.
Mr. Kitchen's lessons focused on preparing and practicing an emergency plan for a lockdown situation, as well as how to be aware of one's situation, protect students in an emergency and deal with potential issues in a school environment before they become threats.
The presentation concluded with a live exercise in which teachers acted out a lockdown scenario at the middle school. Fort Sherman Academy discharged a simulated gunshot to familiarize teachers with the sound.
