From the Office of Emergency Management:

The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) hosted an active shooter based full-scale exercise Saturday, May 18 at UNM-Los Alamos.

Los Alamos Police, Fire, Emergency Management and Classic Air Medical all participated in preparing for and responding to an active shooter event. The exercise provided valuable rescue task force training for those involved and gave each entity several ideas on how to improve their preparation and response.

OEM would like to thank UNM-LA for allowing us to conduct the exercise at their beautiful campus, and LANL for their moulage team and evaluator support of the exercise. We also would like to thank Jenn Bartram and Kateri Morris for providing photos of the exercise.

Most of all we would like to personally thank all of the volunteers from the community who gave up a part of their weekend to assist public safety and emergency responders as volunteer actors: Mike Walters, Jonathan Barone, Karen Fortson, Donna Martinez, Steven Baretta, Theresa McCorkhill, Chris Campbell, Maria Campbell, Marilyn Ramsey, Landon Harrison, Jennifer Neil,  Paige Ramsey, Jose Carreno, Nancy Hibbs, Cindy Koehler, Tatiana Espinoza, Brandon Williams, Bob Harmon and Cyril Jakubowski.
