NH employees to begin active shooter training

The Associated Press

CONCORD - Officials say 11,000 N.H. state employees will begin mandatory training on active shooter situations next month.

Gov. Maggie Hassan's office developed the course in conjunction with the New Hampshire Department of Safety following the San Bernardino, California, mass shooting that killed 14 people earlier this month.

The two-hour class will teach employees what to do if an active shooter ever entered a state building. It's based on a national model that also stresses the warning signs of suspicious activity.

Perry Plummer, head of the state's Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, says the training's message is "run if you can, hide if you can; if not, you've got to fight."

The training begins in January and will run for about three months.
