Students Participate in Active Shooter Drill

The Grass Valley Police Department has introduced new safety training at Silver Springs High School. Approximately 130 students participated in the ‘Active Shooter’ session led by Sergeant Jason Perry Friday morning. Perry says reacting to the Active Shooter alarm is very different than a fire drill. He says the three main actions are ‘Run..Hide…Fight’…
