BROOKSVILLE, Fla. — The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting an information session on Civilian Response to Active Shooter.

Communities across the country have reassessed their level of preparedness and established broader training and education programs.

The class takes place on Monday, May 21 at PHSC North Campus located at 11415 Ponce de Leon Boulevard in Brooksville. There will be a day session that is held from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. as well as a night session that will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

"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," HCSO wrote on the event page.

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.
