This past week, members of the Brisbane Police Dept, Fire Dept., as well as Communications staff from the City Manager's Office participated in an Active Shooter/Violent Intruder training at Mills High School in Millbrae.  This training brought together a unified group of law enforcement officers, fire fighters, emergency service personnel, educators, Public Information Officers (PIOs), and volunteers from across San Mateo County to prepare for such an event.   The media was invited to attend the training on Wednesday; watch this coverage from KTVU.

Thank you to the San Mateo County Office of Emergency Services for sponsoring the event and Mills High School for hosting this year's event as it allowed officials from across the county to better collaborate and prepare for an emergency.  The more we train together, the more new techniques we can practice together, the better we become.
