The Glendale Fire Department and the Glendale Police Department participated in an Active Shooter Hostile Event Response training this week with the goal of ensuring both public safety agencies communicate productively, move efficiently and effectively sort, treat and extract victims during an active shooter incident. Glendale Adventist Health donated the space for the drills and numerous volunteers participated to create a more realistic scenario. “Collaborating with our public safety partners reflects our shared dedication to safeguarding the community,” said Glendale Police Capt. Rafael Quintero, Field Services Division. “Together, we are committed to honing our skills to ensure a swift and coordinated response if a crisis event were to occur.”
