Every school district in Summit County, and across Ohio, is receiving a training video to help district spot signs and prepare for an active shooter situation.
The film is a supplement to an in-person training program offered by the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine distributed them to schools on Friday.
A clip of the video, shown here with Training Officer James Burke, shows teachers how to spot trouble signs, and train administrators in drills.
Burke says the statistics show that training and prevention have worked over the last 20 years with regard to fire. He says there are multiple layers in fire prevention, including drills once a month, sprinkler systems, and fire extinguishers in schools.
He claims the same can be done if training for active shooters is done.
The in-person instruction has reached over 4,000 participants, with over 40 more sessions scheduled between now and the end of the year.
DeWine says in the event of an active shooter, teachers, administrators, and even janitors become first responders.
