On Wednesday, August 28, the Browerville School participated in an “active threat training.” The training was conducted by Todd County departments including: Richard Mettler, Todd County Social Services, Ryan Hanson, Long Prairie Police Department, School Resource Officer Tyler Thiel, Sheriff Deputies John DeCock and Travis Winter and Emergency Manager Mike Wiesnewski.

The training was not a full ALICE (Alert, Lock Down, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) training, but hit some of the high points of that training.

DeCock said that what they taught that day would give the school staff more options should an event ever arise.

Some of the scenarios that took place included: hiding (not a recommended option unless there is no other choice), barricading, fighting back and running away.

The training says to do anything you can to survive and save yourself and other victims in the case of an active shooter.
