Training is imperative to any job, but especially for those who are working to save lives.
The Castle Rock Fire and Rescue Department, along with Castle Rock Police, several other law enforcement agencies, and Larkspur and Franktown fire departments will be participating in an active violence intervention training scenario at Castle View High School starting this afternoon.
There will be two training sessions each day today, Friday and Monday. The first session starts at 2 p.m., and the second starts at 8 p.m. each day. They last up to two hours. Residents in the area may hear the sound of gun fire and see numerous emergency vehicles at the school, which are all part of the training.
The media is invited to watch and video the training at 2 p.m. Friday, July 8. Contact Caroline Kipp, ckipp@CRgov.com, or 720-340-2544, if you would like to attend.
Altogether, Castle Rock Fire and Rescue and Castle Rock Police log more than 25,000 hours of training each year. During this type of training, firefighters learn to work alongside police officers in an active violence event.
