BREVARD COUNTY • PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, FLORIDA – The 920th Security Forces Squadron recently conducted incident response training inside an abandoned facility on Patrick Air Force Base, Florida.
This is an annual training requirement that plays an integral role in preparing our highly trained Defenders to handle high stress and chaotic situations.
This year’s training focused on active shooter response with a concentration on search patterns/techniques, team movement, communication, and weapons handling tactics.
Additionally, the training stressed the importance of constant fluidity in an active shooter situation.
Each eight-hour training evolution included classroom instruction, practical application, battle drills/rehearsals, and performance evaluations utilizing simulated M-4 and M-9 weapons systems.
