Active Shooter Training


There will be another active shooter training drill at 49 S. Summit St. (Washington School) starting tonight at 7 pm and conducted throughout the night. The Police department will be utilizing all resources as if this was an actual incident. Police, Fire, EMS and many others may be called onto the scene. Police radios will be used to reach out to other first responders while stating, “This is a drill” prior to calling out for them. Once again, this is only a drill.

 

BPD would like to thank our fellow first responders, Bergenfield FD and Bergenfield Ambulance for assisting us in this training and the Board of Education for giving us the opportunity to utilize the school in training for an active shooter. This drill will allow us to better prepare and streamline resources should an incident ever occur. We can hope for the best, but must prepare for the worst. We ask for non-essential personnel to please refrain from responding to the area and to refrain from contacting the police desk in regards to this drill.
