FONDA, N.Y. – New York State Police are thanking the
students at Fonda-Fultonville High School who volunteered for active shooter
According to State Police, the training was conducted over
the course of two days. Several students volunteered to act as role players
during the training. Police say the participation of the students was important
because it helped to provide true simulation of a real incident.
“The New York State Police are working closely with school
administrators to ensure we are prepared for incidents such as an active
shooter in a school. I would like to thank Principal David Halloran for
allowing us to utilize his facility for this training, which was an
overwhelmingly positive experience for our troopers. I would also like to thank
the student volunteers, who gave up their own personal time to work with us,”
said Captain Douglas Keyer, Troop G Zone 3 Commander.
