SOUTH PASADENA >> Police and fire officials from throughout the region will converge at South Pasadena Middle School Friday for an active shooter response training exercise, officials said.
Lifelike practice scenarios will take place from 8 a.m. to noon at the campus, 1500 Fair Oaks Ave., Pasadena police Capt. Michael Neff said in a written statement.
“Active shooter events are some of the most challenging incidents that first responders face,” Neff said.
“This exercise represents over a year’s worth of planning, coordinating and training in Tactical Emergency Casualty Care by the seven agencies in preparation for the event and will focus on the quick and effective medical treatment of casualties within the area of operations.”
More than 75 first-responders from South Pasadena, Pasadena, Alhambra, Monterey Park, San Gabriel, San Marino and the FBI will take part, Neff said.
Staff and students will not be at school Friday, as it is a scheduled staff development day, officials said.
