Free Citizen Workshop: Response to Active Threat/Active Shooter

What is an Active Threat? – an ongoing violent act where the motive of a person is to kill and/or harm as many people in as short a period of time as possible. What should you do you if you are a citizen caught in the area of an active threat/active shooter? What can you expect from first responders in a situation such as this?

On Thursday, march 1st from 6pm-8pm the Sedro-Woolley Police Department will present a classroom based training on the Citizen Response to Active Threat/Active Shooter. This training will not make you a Ninja or a Navy Seal. But it will give you information to gain a mind set that may keep you and others around alive if you find yourself in an Active Violence or Active Shooter situation.

Officers will be available after the training for a Q&A, and also for any one-on-one conversations. We appreciate the current political atmosphere, however please note this class is not intended to be a political forum but rather a public safety course.

Where: Sedro-Woolley Municipal Court Room, 325 Metcalf St. Sedro-Woolley. Enter on the south doors.
When: March 1st, 2018
Time: 6pm-8pm, doors will open at 5:30pm

Seating will be limited. We ask that you reserve your seat by calling 360-855-0111. Or you can also email your request to: We hope to offer this workshop again, depending on the interest taken for the March 1st class.
