Session Announcement - Civilian Response to Active Shooter – February and March

The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting two information sessions on Civilian Response to Active Shooter. Events in recent years have called attention to the need to be prepared for a wide range of emergencies. Communities across the country have reassessed their level of preparedness and established broader training and education programs.

At the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office, deputies have been training for years to respond to an active shooter incident, training that is routinely reinforced with exercises. Sheriff Al Nienhuis and the men and women of the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office want to emphasize that your awareness and preparedness is as important as our training in keeping your community safe.

Should an incident like this occur, there could be crucial minutes of time before law enforcement officers arrive on the scene. Law Enforcement Officers from the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office will share information from the Department of Homeland Security, FEMA, and the FBI, along with videos on how to react to an active shooter incident.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a notepad and pen as they may want to take a few notes.

To reserve your seat, please go to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office website at www.hernandosheriff.org (News and Events Section)

There are a limited number of seats in each session. 

Please note – Firearms are NOT permitted in the building.
