St. Francis High School staff participates in active shooter training
ST. FRANCIS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Schools are preparing for the upcoming school year by hosting active shooter training exercises.
Staff members in the St. Francis School District just wrapped up a two-day session. On Tuesday, everyone from teachers to custodians learned how to identify potential problems and prevent a school shooting.
On Wednesday, five stations were set up to train staff how to pack a wound, apply a tourniquet and assess injuries.
"It's something that you don't necessarily want to have to train for," said superintendent Blake Peuse. "You don't want to have to deal with a situation you see on the news like this, but we also know it's important 'cause we have to be prepared should something come down the line."
The district superintendent says as many as 150 staff members participated in the training.
