Communities here in the Tulsa metro are staying prepared for an active shooter situation if one happens.
Once images started to pour in from Florida.
Deputies at the Rogers County Sheriff's Office put a plan into motion.
“The patrol units patrol the schools on a daily basis anyways, so this is kind of something extra," said Sgt. Logan Eller, with the Rogers County Sheriff's Office.
The goal-- be visible and thwart any potential copycat attacks.
“I'm sure it's a reassurance to the parents not only here, but at all the schools around to know that we're out being vigilant and trying to protect their children,” said Eller.
Since the Columbine School Shooting, districts and communities across the country started implementing active shooter training.
Travis Biggert's company, Hub International in Tulsa, now offers a free course to anyone.
“As a parent. I invite my family to these events and i want them to know if something like this were to happen what they need to do to survive," said Biggert.
Biggert is a father to 9 year old twins.
“I want to tell them that they need to be on guard that the world isn't always a safe place and that even though they are safe in many places that they need to be alert with what's going on around them," said Biggert
Hub International's annual active shooter training is scheduled for Feb. 27th at Tulsa Tech.
