This training was planned well before Wednesday’s school shooting in Florida.
Officers of the Homer Police Department will offer the public guidance on what to do if they are confronted with an active shooter event.
It’s called the Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events course, and contains strategies, guidance and a proven plan to help you survive.
Homer officers are trained to teach and say all you need is a good attitude and open mind, pen and paper.
The training is Saturday, 1-3 pm, at St. Margaret’s Church on Copeland Avenue in Homer.
No registration is needed.
