Metrolink Partners with Local Law Enforcement for Active Shooter Drill

Metrolink hosted an Active Shooter Training on Saturday, October 27, 2018 at the Metrolink Central Maintenance Facility (CMF). The training is critical to first responders and law enforcement to better prepare to work in and around Metrolink trains and on tracks.

The morning began with a safety briefing by Mike Rock, Interim Safety and Security Director and railroad safety training presented by Jon Waide, Senior Manager, Compliance. The training scenarios were conducted by the deputies from the Special Enforcement Bureau (SEB), and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The successful event had over 60 law enforcement and first responders participating with 20 staff and volunteers along with Metrolink Board Director Vivian Romero participating in the drill.

A special thank you to the volunteers from the Southern California Resources for Independent Living whose participation provided realistic situations and challenges for those practicing in the scenarios, as well as, to the first responders and law enforcement from the cities of Los Angeles, Burbank, Covina, Glendale, Montebello and Pomona.
