Paramount Studios Holds Active Shooter Training

Paramount Studios Holds Active Shooter Training
Paramount Pictures held an active shooter training today, to train for the possibility of such an event either inside the Sherry Lansing theater or outside on the red carpet. They aren't the first studio to hold this type of drill - Universal held one on their backlot recently. 

The training included local authorities such as the LAPD and LAFD. The Los Angeles Emergency Management Department offers the training free to businesses or organizations looking to train their employees.

"We don't want people to be paranoid … these are interesting times we're living in, but we also don't want them to be completely unprepared (for)  the possibility that something like this could happen to them," said LAPD's Kyle Campbell. He spoke to ABC 7, who was there reporting on the training.

Security measures, both seen and unseen, at such events have increased across the board given the number of shootings that have taken place the last few years.
