Downey PD and Fire Hold Active Shooter Drill


For the past few weeks, as part of an on-going effort to enhance public safety, the Downey Police and Fire Departments collaborated in a series of “active shooter” trainings to cross train police and fire staff on current best practices to handle “active shooter” incidents.

The trainings culminated in a hands-on drill at Downey High School on Sunday morning.

The drill highlighted the success of the training, with approximately 25 police officers and firefighters from each department demonstrating their capability to respond to dynamic situations.

Over 50 volunteer role-players, consisting of members from Downey’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), Downey’s Fire Auxiliary, and Police Explorers from both Downey and nearby cities, added to the realism.
