Class at St. Paul's provided instruction to civilians on what to do in an emergency situation
Deputy Ryan DeLong talks about the decision-making process during stressful, emergency situations that people might encounter during a Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events class at St. Paul Lutheran Church this morning.
More than 100 people attended the class, which covered a range of emergency situations, with an emphasis on active shooters, and how people can safely and intelligently respond during such events.

If you missed the class, Frank Klimjack, a Batavia police officer, will present a class called "Do I Need A Bodyguard?" at Grace Baptist Church, 238 Vine St., Batavia, at 6:30 p.m., Feb. 25. Klimjack is a police defensive tactics instructor.
Howard. Do you know if the Sheriff's Department had the foresight to videotape that presentation? For the low cost of a CD/DVD (@ 20-cents), the whole presentation, complete with any question and answer session, could've been recorded for interested parties. The "video" version also could be emailed to anyone, upon request.
ol' prince Andrew wants you to sit there and call the police, he doesn't trust the people to protect themselves even though he travels around with the protection of the NYS banned semi-automatic weapons. Do as I say not as I do..
I love the comment they make about fleeing, locking and barricading the door. If the shooter breaks in, then defend yourself. My question is: with what are you suppose to defend yourself with? Throw chalk or chalk board erasers at him??
I'm looking into a SAFE-ACT compliant sling shot , about the only chance I'll have in New York unless they try to enter my house uninvited.
