(U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Kenneth Boyton) Staying prepared: active shooter exercise
Current terrorism and active shooter events dominate news headlines worldwide on a daily basis. To prepare and test the response efforts of Team Seymour Airmen in dangerous situations, the 4th Security Forces Squadron conducted a planned active shooter exercise the morning of Jan. 11. In the beginning stages of the exercise, there was an initial communication error. The word “exercise” was not present in one of the official notification messages, leading some to possibly believe there was an actual active shooter on the installation. Additional messaging was promptly disseminated to correct the information. “This exercise did exactly what it should do,” Maj. William Roedl, 4th Fighter Wing Inspector General director of inspections said. “It identified weaknesses we can improve upon. Fortunately, we had the opportunity to identify and correct these processes during a controlled exercise situation.”
