This is the kind of training you hope to never have to use.

Nearly 200 members of various law enforcement agencies converged on a mall in Mobile, Alabama on Sunday for an active shooter exercise, FOX 10 reports.

The scenario at Bel Air Mall was a shooter on a rampage after a terrorist attack occurred in another part of the country.

“That’s what’s so important about an event like this is that we bring everyone together so the tactical operators from the county, the city, the FBI, we all work together in this situation…evidence response teams…we all work together so we can understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses,” said Chris Hacker, FBI Assistant Agent in charge.

“We have a year-long relationship with law enforcement and it’s important to cooperate in their efforts as well as for them to cooperate with our efforts. Obviously we’re aware that we need to be available to them when they need a facility,” said Tim Nolan, Bel Air Mall manager.
