There is one business in Mandan that travels to schools to provide real-life safety training.

Wenck Associates specializes in emergency preparedness. The manager says they recently traveled to Bottineau school to provide teacher education through a realistic shooting scenario. They place a shooter with a starter pistol firing off blanks, with teachers and administrators responding throughout the building. Local law enforcement are also involved. An emergency planning consultant says recommendations are different for every school. The business has been getting lots of calls over the past few days.
