Police, Fire Evaluate Preparedness After Shootings

(Toledo, OH)   Toledo's first responders say their emergency plans will evolve after the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas.  

Police and fire department officials say they're already prepared for active shooter and mass casualty events but will continue to relentlessly train, using past incidents as a guide.  

Extra police will be on hand this weekend when ProMedica stages another outdoor concert at Promenade Park to ensure visitors have a safe and fun time.  

Nearly 60 people were killed and more than 500 were injured in the sniper-style shootings during a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip.

Shock and sadness continue to be the buzzwords among northwest Ohio residents who were in Las Vegas during this past weekend's deadly mass shootings.  At least three people with local ties were near the Route 91 Harvest Festival when a sniper opened fire.  

Those witnesses recall a chaotic and horrifying scene of people running for cover, and then a solemn, atypical atmosphere along the Vegas Strip after it was over.
