Mammoth Elementary School Site For Multi-Agency Active Shooter/Tactical Casualty Care Training on August 2nd and 3rd

 

August 11, 2022 – The Mammoth Lakes Police Department, in partnership with the Inland Training Division of the California Highway Patrol, conducted a multi-agency Active Shooter/Tactical Casualty Care training exercise on August 2-3, 2022, at Mammoth Elementary School.

This exercise focused on emergency response to an active shooter incident on campus and how to best collaborate and respond to this scenario with local and state emergency responders. A simulation of the law enforcement response to an active shooter helps to assure a coordinated, timely and effective response.

This training is presented to participants as “realistic as possible” to ensure that first responders have the same knowledge and tactics of how to handle an active shooter. This included simulated gunfire, full classrooms and volunteers running through the hallways. After the shooter was secured by law enforcement in each scenario, role players were evacuated out of the school and attended to by the medical triage unit. Patients were even transported, by ambulance, to Mammoth Hospital who then conducted an exercise on receiving multiple patients.

Training with other agencies in this life-like scenario offers invaluable experience and lasting partnerships.  Agencies who participated in the exercise included the California Highway Patrol, Mono County Sheriff’s Office, Mono County District Attorney, Mammoth Lakes Fire Department, Long Valley Fire Department, Inyo County Probation, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, USFS Inyo National Forest Law Enforcement, Mono County Paramedics, Mammoth Hospital, MLPD/MSCO Explorers, Mammoth Unified School District Staff and many volunteer community members.

A huge thank you to all involved for making this training such a success.

Does “realistic as possible” mean a few hundred cops will just chill outside for the first hour of the exercise?

I thought law enforcement wanted to be gauged together? Isn’t that what the “thin blue line” family is all about?

It’s amazing how police officers call eachother “brothers and sisters”, but the moment one of them does something bad – it’s “don’t gauge them” all together.

Low Before I moved to the Owens Valley,I knew of a lot of bad cops…both when I lived in the A.V. and especially when I lived in Oregon. With my “life-style ” back then,it’s a wonder I never got my butt kicked by one of them on numerous late night-early… Read more »
