Pennsauken Library Hosts Active Shooter Preparedness Event

Last Edited:
PENNSAUKEN, N.J. -

In light of the recent tragedy at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh a little more than a week ago, officials in one South Jersey community are making sure their residents and first responders are prepared in the event of an active-shooter situation.

On Monday, November 5th, the Friends of the Pennsauken Free Public Library sponsored an Active Shooter Preparedness program event.

The free program, which is offered by the FBI, was designed to help participants make the mental and physical preparations to deal with an active-shooter situation.

Officials say the "run, hide or fight" strategies presented last night could potentially be life-saving skills should residents ever find themselves needing to use them.
