Temple: Firefighters, law enforcement and EMS train for emergency situations

More than 40 law enforcement officers, firefighters and paramedics from Central Texas completed training Thursday that will help them work together during emergency situations like an active shooter threat.

Officials said the Active Threat Integrated Response Course will allow public safety agencies to be more proficient in dealing with threats and providing emergency care for the wounded.

Over the course of three days, the agencies participated in exercises focusing on communication.

The training was hosted at the Temple Fire Training facility. It included instructors from Louisiana State University and the National Center for Biomedical Research and Training.
