Safety training for local teachers

PIQUA, Ohio (WDTN) – When teachers in the Piqua School DIstrict return to class, they will be armed with knowledge. Thursday, educators learned how to protect themselves and their students from harm.

In simulated examples, Piqua police trained teachers in the proper ways to react when a shooter is in school.

There is chaos and confusion when a person is in a school with a gun and fear can be deadly. Piqua Deputy Police Chief Marty Grove says they want teachers to get fully involved in safety. They were shown classroom items that can help thwart an attack.

“We teach them to grab staplers, textbooks, anything that can be thrown at the attacker that will interrupt the thought process.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
