TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif.- Law enforcement in Tehama County is boosting its ability to save lives in the event of an active shooter.

Each kit is equipped with a helmet, armor plate vest, and knee caps. Tehama County law enforcement personnel say the active shooter kits will allow them to respond more effectively during emergencies.

The Tehama County Sheriff's office says they currently have ten kits and hope to buy more. Each kit costs around seven-hundred dollars. The sheriff's department says they use the kits for active shooting training simulations. 

Each kit was purchased with a grant from the Homeland Security. Tehama law enforcement are working to have other emergency personnel agencies have access to these kits.

These kits are not available to the public.

Light scattered showers are on tap for the start of your Thursday, and I'm tracking heavier rain ahead from Thursday afternoon through mid day Friday. We'll have a lull in our wet pattern late Friday through early Saturday, but even heavier rain and snow will return this weekend and persist into next week. Major travel impacts will be possible across northern California from this wet weather.
