Condolences for Las Vegas Shooting Victims, Families

The IAFC offers its deep condolences to the victims and families of Sunday night's senseless shooting during a country music festival in Las Vegas. The tragedy serves as another grim reminder that the fire and emergency service in every corner of the world must be prepared should terror descend upon a community.  

Initial reports suggest that the specifics of the Las Vegas attack were different than other active shooter incidents in recent years.

The IAFC urges fire service leaders to work together with law enforcement agencies at all levels of government on active shooter preparedness and training. Coordination should include the local city or county health department and local hospitals.
