PORT JERVIS — Port Jervis Police, the Orange County Sheriff's Office and Deerpark Police have scheduled a seminar on public shooting preparedness, including life-saving techniques to utilize in case of a public shooting.
The seminar will run from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, June 2 at the Erie Trackside Manor. Three speakers, each representing one of the above agencies, will discuss:
• How to survive an active shooting, including a video and a demonstration on what to do;
• How to recognize a suspicious device and what to do in a situation in which you find one;
• Overall awareness for citizens, and what to do in case of any shooting occurring in a public area.
Over the course of the seminar there will be light refreshments for the guests, this includes juice, coffee, bagels, and Danishes. Port Jervis Police Department and Port Jervis Citywide Neighborhood Watch will be sponsoring the event.
Not only will this prove to be beneficial for you, but it will be helpful for your family and friends as well. We don't like to think that these events could happen to ourselves, but it's important to remain educated and vigilant. Remember, if you see something say something.
