Officer Peterson creates active shooter awareness during chamber luncheon


Would you know what to do if an active shooter were on the premise?

Park Ridge Officer Ben Peterson taught us how to prepare for violence should an active shooter be present at the workplace during the Park Ridge Chamber’s Monthly Networking Luncheon on August 8. Using the ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) program, attendees were provided with the guidance and tools needed to help keep his or her organization stay safe through careful planning, quick acting, and recovery. One tip to remember is to always try to evacuate if possible!

Twisted Trunk Catering provided a mouthwatering Italian buffet which included bruschetta, meatballs, marinara and vodka cream sauce pasta, caprese salad, and garlic rolls. Attendees mingled with one another throughout the afternoon and even won a few raffle prizes!
