Situations like the ones taking place on a daily basis in Chicago are demonstrating that active shooter situations aren’t an anomaly in America anymore. While most people would like to think that situations on which people carrying guns and shooting innocents are a thing of Europe and the Middle East, the reality is that this type of situation is happening everyday in their neighborhoods.
Sadly, this includes our very well guarded military installations. Even though we’d like to think that places like hospitals and schools are off-limits, in reality even these places inside military bases, are the scene of deranged individuals carrying guns and shooting everyone. That’s why Active Shooter Training has become a staple in almost all public safety departments, including our military.
In this video, Marines assigned to the Marine Corps Air Station Yuma in Arizona conduct an Active Shooter Training as part of their annual emergency response training. No doubt, a truly important exercise.
