People plan for responding to many different emergencies, like fires, tornados, and floods.

Now, Ottawa County is adding active-shooter response training to that list.

The Ottawa County Sheriff's Department says, like in any emergency, how one responds could save his or her life.

To that end, the department is offering "citizen response to active shooter events" training on May 25.

The class is to provide strategies, guidance, and a "proven plan" for surviving an active-shooter event.

It's free to attend and is for people 18 and older.
