The FOX 8 I-Team has found more and more local first responders training for a new way to get medical help more quickly to victims of a gunman on a rampage. The plan revolves around sending ambulance crews into scenes right behind the first officers. While the officers search for the gunman, the paramedics search for victims. This comes to light as the nation now watches the investigation into a deadly school shooting in Texas. That scene has made headlines for delays getting police and rescuers into the building. Wednesday, the Brecksville fire chief shared with us pictures of his first responders training with police for an active shooter. Nick Zamiska told us paramedics there now train to go into an active shooting scene immediately with police. The medics get bulletproof vests and helmets They also carry medical supplies.
