Bakersfield College’s Department of Public Safety is holding Active Shooter Response Trainings for the campus community and general public throughout September and October.

All trainings will be held at noon in the Levan Center. The upcoming trainings are scheduled for:

• Sept. 5

• Sept. 11

• Sept. 26

• Oct. 8

• Oct. 17

BC routinely offers these informational sessions so that the campus and community can be familiar with the best practices, drills, exercises and preparation.

“Keeping BC students, faculty, staff, and our community safe is an ongoing and constant effort," said BC’s Director of Student Life Nicky Damania in a press release. “The information presented in these sessions has the ability to save lives and bring awareness to these unfortunate incidences.”
