Security forces, medics conduct active shooter exercise

SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill -- The 375th Security Forces Squadron worked with the 375th Medical Group for an active shooter exercise Aug. 16 at Scott Air Force Base. The exercise helped security forces personnel identify any short falls or limiting factors in response capabilities and gave them a chance to test and train new tactics and procedures. It also afforded security forces the opportunity to train with the other first responders (fire department and medical) to ensure they can work cohesively to neutralize the threat, secure the scene and treat victims and casualties as soon as possible. The overall goal is to be prepared to respond efficiently and effectively to minimize the loss of life in the event of an active shooter. (U.S. Air Force photos by Senior Airman Tristin English)
