The scenes in this video, taken using a head-mounted GoPro, can be disturbing unless you know that this was only a drill.

But the active shooter and mass casualty simulation at the Berkeley Global Campus in Richmond on March 26 was significant, and the GoPro footage helps offer insight into a simulation that truly exhibits the horrors of such an incident, as well as the need to be prepared.

The Berkeley Medical Reserve Corps collaborated with the campus Army ROTC and UC Berkeley police on the drill, which was described as “an invaluable tool to discover our individual, team, and agency strengths and weaknesses.”
