Active Shooter Training Exercise NA14119lp

WHAT:
News Conference

WHEN:
June 26, 2014
1 p.m.

WHERE:
California Hospital Medical Center
1401 S. Grand Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90015

Media staging area will be located at the west entrance of Leavey Hall (just south of 15th Street on the East side of Hope Street)

WHO:
California Hospital Medical Center
Los Angeles Police Department
Los Angeles Fire Department

WHY:
California Hospital Medical Center along with the Los Angeles Police Department and Los Angeles Fire Department will be holding a press conference regarding their joint “Active Shooter Training Exercise.”  The purpose of the drill is to prepare hospital staff and first responders for active shooter events where communication and partnership between the parties is critical.  California Hospital Medical Center is located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles and is a Level II Trauma Center.

DETAILS:
On June 26th California Hospital Medical Center (CHMC) will conduct an “Active Shooter Training Exercise” in partnership with the City of Los Angeles. The goal of the training is to familiarize hospital staff with how best to respond during an active shooter event. The exercise will also allow CHMC to test their internal security procedures for an active shooter event inside their facility, and test the interaction with first responders who arrive at active shooter scenes. The City of Los Angeles has begun to integrate Police Department and Fire Department training for these types of scenarios – also know known as “Unified Response” – and conducts similar trainings with other Los Angeles businesses.

The City will have dispatch personnel from both Police and Fire at the exercise to field simulated calls for help, and to dispatch Police and Fire units that are in the area surrounding CHMC. As those Police and Fire units respond, they will work together to stop the shooter and render aid to the victims of the shooter. The roles of the shooter and victims will be played by police and hospital staff.

By having hospital personnel, Police dispatchers, Fire dispatchers, Police units and Fire units partner for this highly realistic training scenario, all parties hope to be better prepared for real-life violent incidents that may occur in the City of Los Angeles.

The June 26th training exercise is slated to begin 6:00 a.m. and will end at 1:00 p.m.
