Garrett W. Loomis

Active Shooter and Situational Awareness

After a two-year break because of COVID-19, organizers will be holding the 9th Annual Garrett W. Loomis Educational Seminar on April 2 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at Jefferson Community College in Watertown, New York.

The Crisis Consulting Group, headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, will be conducting the training seminar, which is also open to business owners and their employees, along with school officials. The training is designed to “make sure your personnel have the safest, most practical and most effective de-escalation and conflict resolution training in the industry,” according to organizers.

The event is being offered free of charge to anyone interested in attending through a special fund established to honor the late Garrett Loomis, a Sackets Harbor, New York firefighter who was killed in the line of duty more than 10 years ago. It will focus on the duties and roles of emergency services personnel and others to help mitigate and de-escalate an active shooter threat in the safest manner.

Registration is strongly recommended,
although walk-ins will be welcome.
