The Mt. Olive Area Chamber of Commerce plans to host a special event on Thurs., June 23, Active Shooter Awareness, at the Mt. Olive Library, from 8 a.m.-10:30 a.m. Cost is $10 per person.
This presentation is open to anyone but is particularly important for business owners and organizations that hold public events or for anyone who feels the need for this awareness training.
An active shooter is defined as a person, or persons, actively engaged in killing, or attempting to kill, people in a confined and other populated area. In most cases, active shooters have no pattern or method to their selection of victims. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and happen quickly. Individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to take action in order to deal with an active shooter situation.
Everyone should be prepared to help prevent and/or react to potential active shooter situations. This presentation is intended to provide guidance to individuals and to help them prepare and respond to an active shooter situation.
Interested attendees are strongly encouraged to make a reservation in advance online through the chamber website, www.mountolivechambernj.com.
