Organization trains childhood professionals for active shooter situations

Local

An active shooter situation is scary enough, but one organization travels the country making sure childhood professionals are prepared.

The Institute of Childhood Preparedness foccuses on training those who watch children from zero to 11 years old.

The one-day active shooter training starts with a presentation, then moves onto hands-on exercises. Participants can learn different tactical methods, such as barricading doors and using improvised weapons.

Andrew Roszak, executive director, said it’s important to train professionals watching young children.

The Institute of Childhood Preparedness makes a stop in Wichita today — the class is full. It’s next stop in Kansas is tomorrow in Dodge City. Registration can be found on childhoodpreparedness.org.
