[ARCHIVED] Police Conduct Training at High School

Police Generic

The Steamboat Springs Police, along with local emergency services including Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue, will be conducting a series of active shooter/threat response training exercises at the Steamboat Springs High School during the week of July 9-13, 2018.

 

“We all hope something like this will never happen in Steamboat Springs or Routt County,” said Cory Christensen, Steamboat Springs Police Chief. “However, it’s imperative that our officers train to be ready for such an act, which we’re seeing in the news all too frequently.”


Under the direction of lead instructor, Sergeant Jeff Wilson, the Rapid And Immediate Deployment (RAID) group, comprised of members of the Steamboat Springs Police, Routt County Sheriff and other area law enforcement agencies will conduct several classroom sessions and a number of real-time, interagency, live exercises. Scenarios will span small and large situations including triage and trauma care conditions.


The all-day training will take place at the Steamboat Springs High School (45 Maple Street) and runs daily from Monday, July 9, through Friday, July 13.  The community will see a large presence of law enforcement agencies, police officers as well as fire and EMS personnel and vehicles in and around the high school throughout the week.  


RAID training takes place annually and similar training sessions have occurred at Hayden and North Routt Charter Schools in the past years.  The Steamboat Springs Police would like to thank the Steamboat Springs School District, Steamboat Springs High School administration and staff, and exercise volunteers in advance for the opportunity to conduct this training.
