Major active shooter training drill at Temple City High School   By Terry Miller   Temple Sheriff’s Station hosted a major active shooter training drill at Temple City High School Monday involving approximately 100 officers. Law enforcement officers from El Monte, Arcadia, Alhambra and San Gabriel worked seamlessly with Los Angeles County Fire in a scenario of a shooting attack at a high school . Staff from surrounding areas participated along with students who acted as ‘victims’ in the training exercise. This training involved live ‘simmunitions.’  Sergeant S. Morsi Temple Sheriff’s Station was one of the coordinating officers who explained how each dept. worked with one another to help better train those less familiar with such a horrific possibility and work with the faculty on how best to protest those who they are left in charge of on a daily basis.

As heavily armed officers approached the quad in Temple City High Monday morning they were met with multiple rounds of ‘simmunitions’ (which are essentially paint balls on a 9mm shell). No live ammunition was in use at any time. In fact, the officers went through extensive briefings and checks before they were allowed to participate in the exercise. Officers deployed smoke bombs in an effort to thwart any further attacks from four heavily armed men who were shooting in the school. At one point Special Enforcement Officers (SWAT) officers were called in with a Bearcat as their protection and did a door to door check while evacuating students from classrooms after they determined the area was safe. Paramedics were brought in to treat and transport the wounded all the while being protected by numerous police officers. Meanwhile officers were finding and securing areas around the school and took down the four  heavily armed suspects. Scenarios such as the one held Monday happen approximately monthly in Los Angeles County. As one officer said, “you can never train enough for one of these kinds of situations…we all learn a great deal from these exercises.” Teachers and admin staff agreed and thanked the officers and firefighters for their dedication to public safety.
