Active Shooter Training Held at Tahoe Vista Elementary

Posted: Updated:

Police officers and firefighters in South Lake Tahoe practiced training for an active shooter within city limits on Monday morning.

The scenario at Tahoe Valley Elementary School Monday morning involved an active shooter inside the school with multiple casualties, including several victims.

Firefighters say it's important for them to learn to cooperate with other agencies so they can all communicate clearly in a real emergency. "Our law enforcement colleagues that were on scene, they talk on a different radio frequency and talk in a different radio terminology, so it's very important for us to get together in being able to accomplish the same goals," says SLT Fire Department Captain Mark Wygant.

Students are out for spring break this week in South Lake so the training did not interfere with any classes.
