Back to School: Active Shooter Training
SAN ANTONIO - The start of the new school year is less than two weeks away. Local safety experts are reminding students to keep a few factors in mind, especially when it comes to active shooter training. News 4 San Antonio's Camilla Rambaldi spoke with Ryan Searles, Vice President of Risk Management for The Texas Group Inc..
For 6 years, Searles has been training schools and businesses for a living. However, it is more than just a job for Searles. He is a parent himself and making sure his children are safe and know how to react, is a priority.
"The way I say it is because I have younger children. You got to tell them what it is. You got to say, in case of an active shooter this is what you do. If you call it anything else, it will confuse the kids," said Searles.
The most recent school shooting at a Santa Fe High School back in May, sparked a call for action across Texas. This year school districts are taking safety to another level, from clear backpacks to the testing of bullet proof glass.
"So you're seeing schools take a lot more of a proactive stance on their security and physical security barriers," added Searles.
