Active Shooter Drill to be Conducted in Hagåtña
ASAN, Guam (Nov. 18, 2015) – The U.S. Navy in partnership with the Guam Police Department (GPD) will hold an active shooter drill Nov. 20 from 10-11 a.m. at the Guam Capital Investment Corp. (GCIC) building military recruiting annex in Hagåtña.
No live ammunition will be used during the drill. GPD officers will be present to ensure public safety and to prevent personnel from entering the training area.
The general public, particularly those in nearby areas, should not be alarmed by an increase in noise and activity associated with the training.
The active shooter drill is in response to a shooting that occurred at a military recruiting station in Chattanooga, Tenn. Active shooter drills ensure the joint safety of military recruiters and the local community by increasing readiness of public safety and emergency responders.
