Authorities to hold ‘active killer’ training at area school

Expect to see a heightened police, fire, and paramedic presence at one area school building the next two weekends. The Port Huron Police Department along with Port Huron Schools and other law enforcement agencies will be training at Crull Elementary. Sergeant Doug Decker says this marks the third year for the multi-agency training aimed to help authorities better respond to active killer scenarios. The training will take place this coming Saturday and on Saturday the 18th in and around Crull Elementary School at Hancock and Riverside Drive in Port Huron. Police Chief Joe Platzer says numerous agencies will be present. “In these type of events, it’s just not going to be the Port Huron Police Department that’s going to be involved,” said Platzer. “We’re going to have all these other agencies… we want everybody to be on the same page.” The training scenario is expected to run from about 7:30am to noon both Saturdays.
