Video: Surviving an Active Shooter Situation

A government agency has produced a video that shows what to do in an active shooter situation.

With several incidents involving active shooters over the past few months, a video from Houston's disaster preparedness agency shows viewers how to react if confronted with an active shooter situation.

Lower Southampton Police and police departments around Bucks County often practice drills that involve active shooter situations.

Lower Southampton Police Chief William Wiegman told Patch that all police officers have been trained in Active Shooter Response. He also said that officers have been reminded on this training they received in light of last week's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary.
