Limestone County sheriff's deputies are teaching school administrators how they can help law enforcement during an active shooter situation.
Every Limestone County school principal and assistant principal came to Wednesday morning's active shooter training.
Sheriff's deputies worked with teachers and played the role of the active shooter during different scenarios, and administrators were responsible for neutralizing the threat.
Administrators were tested on their decision making skills and how well they picked up on response procedures.
Limestone County schools director of transportation, safety, and athletics Rusty Bates told WAAY 31 active training like this makes him feel as ready as he'll ever be if faced with an emergency situation.
"I'm not so sure there's enough training we could go through because you just don't know what could happen, but every bit of training that we get allows us an opportunity to be prepared in case of an emergency situation," Bates said.
The active shooter training was in the old Owens Elementary School building. Class was not in session in the building during the training.
