Kaitlin Roig-Debellis, a first-grade teacher who survived the 2012 massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT., next month will address a Morris County forum on an unimaginable subject: What to do during an “active shooter” situation.
She will speak on Thursday, March 9, 2017, at 7 pm in Christ Church, in Rockaway Township.
Twenty children and six staff members were shot dead by a lone gunman at the Sandy Hook school just over four years ago.
Hosted by church Lead Pastor David Ireland, the Active Shooter Response Summit will include New Jersey Education Commissioner Kimberly Harrington, and many members of the law enforcement community.
The state offices of Homeland Security and Attorney General will be represented, along with the State Police.
Morris County Prosecutor Fredric Knapp, Sheriff James Gannon and Emergency Management Director Jeff Paul also are scheduled to attend, as are various police organizations and departments.
Admission is free, but registration is required.
