Training video “Shooter Shooter: Lessons Learned from Ohio’s School Shootings”

The tragic shootings at Sandy Hook, Virginia Tech and Columbine have brought light to the threats that schools could face daily. But more recent tragedies, like the 2016 attack at the Ohio State University  and shooting incidents at schools around Ohio, illustrate the “it can’t happen here” mentality can no longer be maintained.

This video features interviews with school administrators from Chardon Local Schools, Madison Local Schools and West Liberty Salem Local Schools who share their experiences of when active aggressors attacked their schools. Their narratives about the time before the attacks share a common theme – it can’t happen here. Many share this mindset; however, each story confirms that an attack can actually happen anywhere, anytime, and schools must be prepared.  They discuss three key lessons – prepare, take action and recover – hoping that school administrators across Ohio will incorporate these activities when creating their own schools’ emergency management plans.

This video was released to schools on Monday, February 5, 2018.
