WABASH COUNTY, Ind. - Wabash County Schools partnered with Parkview and other local emergency organizations for active shooter response training Monday morning at Wabash High School.

The superintendent and Wabash City Police Department say in order for it to be as realistic as possible, they decided to include students and faculty members as actors. First responders were trained on treating wounds.


Wabash County Schools partnered with Parkview and other local emergency organizations for active shooter response training Monday morning at Wabash High School.

Law enforcement and the fire department did a practice press conference about what took place. They practiced every aspect from beginning to end to make sure they are prepared in the event an active shooter situation does happen.

"We have to be able to be prepared," said Jason Callahan, superintendent. "We prepare for fire and tornado. This is no different."

The Wabash City Police captain says this scenario is one they have been working on for months, and it was the most realistic training they've ever been in.
