Employees at the Houghton County Courthouse will undergo active shooter training next month.
County Administrator Eric Forsberg says the simulation will help teach them what to do if someone with a weapon actually does threaten the building and its occupants…
Forsberg said it’s been a few years since such an exercise was conducted, and there has been a lot of staff turnover since then.
The courthouse will be closed between 12:30 and 4:30 on December 12th.
A similar drill may be scheduled next spring at the airport.
