STAMFORD - Nearly two dozen Stamford firefighters participated in a drill involving an active shooter at the UConn Stamford Campus in an effort to learn how to better respond during emergency situations.

Firefighters learned how to give medical treatment to those hurt by applying tourniquets to stop bleeding.

The class was taught by Tac-Med, a private company that has taught emergency response since 2007. They say more and more towns and school districts have turned to them for help.

The drill was paid for by the firefighter’s union. The union’s president says he hopes the city does the same for all emergency responders.
