FBI special agent presentation set


The Mahoning County District Board of Health will host a presentation by special agent Todd D. Werth, the Training and National Academy coordinator of the FBI Cleveland division, from 9 to 11 a.m. March 1, in McMahon Hall at the Mill Creek MetroParks Farm, 7524 Columbiana-Canfield Road.

Werth will share the presentation “Active Shooter/ Threats: Civilian Response in the Workplace, Schools and other Public Places.” The terms “active shooter” and “active threat” are used during violent encounters where an individual is actively looking to hurt people.

The two-hour presentation will explore what civilians can do during these situations, how they can prepare themselves for an incident and how to keep others safe.

Registration deadline is Monday.

To register, contact Rosie Totterdale at rtotterdale@mahoning-health.org, or call 330-270-2855, ext. 136.
