Glacier National Park Rangers, in cooperation with Flathead County Sheriff's Office SWAT Team, will conduct and participate in active shooter training exercises on Friday, May 18th at the West Glacier Elementary School. The school will not be in session that day, and no students or school personnel will be involved in the exercise. Emergency response personnel will participate in the day-long simulation event to increase emergency preparedness if an active shooter situation should arise in the area. The training will be led by Flathead County SWAT and attended by Glacier National Park's law enforcement staff and other law enforcement cooperators. Washable paint-based ammunition will be used during the training. A series of scenarios will be staged in the school setting to help law enforcement officers improve skills to better respond to a potential threat. Active shooter incidents are dangerous and often unpredictable. Situations evolve quickly and require swift action to mitigate the threat. For more information about the training, please contact park headquarters at 406-888-7800.
