Brown County law enforcement and first responders are training so they're all on the same page in a potentially dangerous situation like an active shooter, fire, or explosion. Thursday, they trained at the Resch Center in Ashwaubenon, working through different scenarios that may occur. "What the attempt is, is to bring all the different disciplines together, fire, EMS, and police, and really look at a coordinated response where we communicate the same way," said Fire Chief Alan Matzke with the City of De Pere. He said they are aiming to communicate in the same language and same response protocols. The training began in the morning by illustrating what the response should look like and a tabletop exercise.
