When it comes to many emergencies, we were taught at a young age how to respond. Fire–Stop, drop and roll. Tornado–Seek shelter in a basement. But what should you do in the case of an active shooter? Like any emergency, doing the right things can save your life. The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Spring Lake-Ferrysburg Office is offering “Civililan Response to Active Shooter Events” training on July 26 in Spring Lake. Hosted by Spring Lake Rotary Club, the training is being held at the Spring Lake Country Club located at 17496 N Fruitport Road in Spring Lake from 6-9PM. The event is free but registration is required. Space is limited. Visit miOttawa.org/Sheriff to register. Participants must be 18 years of age or older. A pictured ID is required.
Active shooter events are unpredictable and could happen in any place at any time. Workplaces. Houses of Worship. Retail Centers. This thought provoking and engaging class provides strategies, guidance, and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event.
If you have questions about the event, contact Sergeant Jason Kik: 616-842-1889.
