Workplace violence: Be prepared: Businesses and employees should also be trained and prepared for violence


WILLMAR — Along with conducting regular fire drills, Minnesota school students are now required to practice how to respond to an active shooter in the building.

Schools practice because of an increasing number of deadly events all across the county – including twice in Minnesota — where students have been victims of violence.

The latest incident happened Sunday when three people were killed in shootings at Jewish centers in Kansas.
