First responders participate in active shooter training






By Joseph Slacian

Emergency responders from around the area spent part of the morning training for a scenario they, and the rest of the community, hope they never have to do in real life.

Personnel from the Wabash Police Department, Wabash Fire Department and Wabash County Sheriff’s Department, in conjunction with Parkview Healthcare and Lutheran Helicopter, conducted an active shooter training session at Wabash High School.

Under the scenario, WPD received an emergency call at 11:03 a.m. that shots had been fired at the school. By 11:46 p.m., the incident was over. The “gunman,” portrayed by Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Baker, was dead in the basement of the high school.
