ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – The public is welcome to a training session on how to survive an active shooter from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 15 and 24 at the Kane County Sheriff’s Office, 37W755 Route 38, St. Charles Township, according to a news release.

Sheriff Ron Hain is hosting the event, which will be presented by Lt. Kevin Williams.
