Mass shootings can happen anywhere, so the Baltimore Jewish Council wanted to make sure that everyone is prepared.

They hosted their third active shooter training on Monday night and invited leaders of local Jewish Organizations and members of the community to take part in their active shooter training session.

The Jewish Council originally planned to do it after the holidays, but following the recent Synagogue shooting in Pennsylvania, it prompted them to do the event sooner.

"My goal is that with this training and situational awareness to make these people and everybody part of the 100 people that survived Pittsburgh that's my goal. to give them as much information as we can so that if they're ever faced with a situation they'll know what to do," said Keith Tiedmann, Director of Security at Baltimore Jewish Council.

Organizers also say the number one thing you can do when you go anywhere is to always know where the exits are.
