Active Shooter

As part of a city emergency preparedness program, the city of Houston, Texas and the Department of Homeland Security have produced a video training program describing what to do if confronted with an active shooter situation. Houston Police Department has given permission for other departments to make this video available to their citizens.
 
The City of Clayton Police Department encourages all Clayton residents to view this video and to mentally prepare themselves for the unlikely, but still frightening, possibility that they may someday need to Run, Hide, Fight.
