|Thanks for reading GwdToday - Everyday!|
On Wednesday, June 5th, members of Laurens County's Special Operations Response Team (SORT) joined together with Ware Shoals School District 51 for an emergency preparedness active shooter training scenario hosted by the Ware Shoals Primary School.
SORT members reviewed detailed crisis management plans with Principal Dan Crockett and District 51 Crisis Management Coordinator, Eric Cox. All parties involved agreed that teamwork and preparation, with exercises like the one conducted at Ware Shoals Primary School, are essential in ensuring that the children of Laurens County have a safe and uninterrupted learning environment.
The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office remains committed to ensuring that the schools located within its jurisdiction will have the training and resources necessary to respond in the event of a crisis situation. The LCSO looks forward to participating in other similar training events at area schools.

I'm not an expert myself, Steve, and I don't mean anything bad by correcting you but that set up is a usual formation for entering a building, after making sure the surrounding area is clear. They do that to minimize damages from everyone crowding around a door, instead having a steady stream of a team through a door, then checking to see if the room is clear. It was one of the last things I learned in basic training.

I'm no expert (I was military intelligence, I would have been a lousy infantryman), but I see 6 helmets clustered like sardines in this photo. Spread out! A good shooter with a semi could take all of you out in about 7 seconds. Like I said, I'm no expert, and perhaps the experts of our day say to bunch up like sitting ducks.
