City of Alhambra Active Shooter Response Training


Alhambra , CA United States

The Alhambra Police Department in partnership with the Alhambra Unified School District (AUSD) will be
conducting two days of Active Shooter training on Saturday, September 15, 2018 and Saturday, September 22,
2018 at the Alhambra High School campus (101 South Second Street). The training scenarios will include over
1,000 AUSD employees, police officers from the Alhambra Police Department, Alhambra Fire Department, as
well as first responders from the cities of San Marino, South Pasadena, San Gabriel, and Monterey Park.

The purpose of this training is to provide first responders the opportunity to develop their skills, tactics and
planning with various components of critical and fluid incidents. The AUSD staff will take active roles in the
training, as well as be exposed to some of the stressors, such as actors playing wounded and frantic students, the
sounds of simulated gun fire and inert improvised explosive devices (IED’s). The Alhambra Police Department
has a long history of partnership with the Alhambra Unified School District in our efforts to provide a safe
environment for students and staff through collaborative training and communication.

A press area will be designated across the street from the Alhambra High School campus. Representatives from
the Alhambra Police Department will be available to answer questions.

Dates: September 15th & 22nd, 2018
Time: 7:30am – 12:00pm
Location: Alhambra High School, 101 South Second Street Alhambra, Ca 91801

Press staging area: grass area of Alhambra City Hall, located on Second Street. Please park on First Street and
walk between city hall and the city library to the staging area. Second Street will be closed to vehicle and
pedestrian traffic.
