MARIETTA, Ohio (WTAP) San Bernadino, Orlando and Dallas are all sites of mass shootings within the last eight months in the U.S., making the topic of active shooters a priority around the nation.
The Mid-Ohio Valley Safety Council says its important for people to know what to do in the case of an active shooter, or domestic terrorism attack.
Tim Schambs with the Delaware County Sheriff's Office gave a lesson on the topic.
The main takeaway was something several people have heard before and that is to run, hide or fight in the event of an active shooter.
"One of the biggest problems we see right now is everyone is afraid to call law enforcement, for whatever reason. If you have a gut feeling telling you something is not right, you know that better than anybody. We want to serve you. You need to call us. We take too many things for granted. Believe me, unfortunately this a crazy world we live in right now. There are bad people out there," says Schambs.
He says if you see something, say something.
You never know when an active shooter could attack your workplace or town.
