Active-shooter training scheduled this morning at CRH

Don’t be alarmed if you see police cars and fire trucks on the campus of Columbus Regional Hospital this morning.

Kelsey DeClue, hospital spokesperson, says that staff members will be taking part in training on what to do in an active-shooter situation. She says the training focuses on getting hospital employees out of the building, how and where to hide and, if confronted by a shooter, what they can do to fight back.

This morning’s training is taking place in the new Emergency Room area that has yet to be opened. DeClue adds that the training should be finished by around noon
