A year ago, the restaurant trained its employees how to respond during an active shooter situation.
After recent mass shootings across the country, you may have heard about active shooter training for school staff. But now there is a push for classes for restaurant employees and other service workers.
Employees at the Cru Restaurant managed to stay calm thanks to training from Green Beret Aaron Forum who owns a shoot center in Cape Coral and also conducts active shooter drills for businesses.
“Because the shooting was 75 yards away they thought it was more prudent to stay inside and barricade, they immediately pulled everyone inside locked all the doors were prepared to defend themselves,” Forum said.
