SOUTHPORT, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - An active shooter situation is not a situation any first responder wants to find themselves in, but Panama City emergency personnel are preparing nonetheless.

Active shooter training was held at Gulf Coast State College's North Bay Campus. Both law enforcement and fire/EMS participated in the training, learning the best tactics for dealing with an active shooter situation.

"Ultimately, our goal is saving lives," said Dr. S Barry Issenberg of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

By the end of the training, the goal is for the personnel that participated to teach the class to others.
