On Friday, August 3, 2018, the final active shooter training exercise will take place at Piner High School in Santa Rosa starting at 8:30am and ending at approximately 5:00pm.
“This training has proven to be invaluable and has greatly prepared all of us for an active shooter incident,” explains SRPD Sergeant Robert Reynolds. “The police department, fire department and our EMS partners will continue to work together in the future. A special thank you to the Santa Rosa City Schools for their support and allowing us to use Piner High School as the training site.”
This joint drill will include the response from the same local emergency service agencies and educational institutions as the previous trainings and includes: Santa Rosa Police Department (SRPD), City of Santa Rosa Fire Department (SRFD), American Medical Response (AMR), Santa Rosa Junior College District Police Department, California Highway Patrol (CHP) and Santa Rosa City Schools.
Piner High School will be off-limits to anyone not participating in the training exercise, and the perimeter of the school will be cordoned off. The exercise is not anticipated to impact traffic on Fulton Road.
Residents and motorists may notice a large amount of law enforcement and emergency vehicles during the exercise, which may include ambulances, fire engines, and police cars. Those in the surrounding area may also hear sounds of screaming, simulated gun fire, simulated explosions, and other noises as part of the training.
