Deputy Tim Sanford and his wife were enjoying their beach vacation when they noticed a woman struggling to pull her friend out of the water. Deputy Sanford immediately jumped up and ran to help.

He adds that even while on vacation first responders are always on duty.

Join us tomorrow May 10th along with Homeland Security Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency for an Active Shooter Emergency Planning Presentation.

Preparing employees for a potential active shooter incident is an integral component of an organization's incident response planning. Because active shooter incidents are unpredictable and evolve quickly, preparing for and knowing what to do in an active shooter situation can be the difference between life and death. Every second counts.
