Arrowhead Regional Medical Center’s staff learns from lessons of Dec. 2 terrorist attack
San Bernardino Sun

Dr. Richard Pitts remembers sitting down at his desk around 9 a.m. and thinking of all the things he was going to accomplish that Wednesday in early December.

Several key Arrowhead Regional Medical Center officials were in Northern California for a meeting and the medical director had the morning to himself.

“I had this thought, ‘What could possibly go wrong today,’ ” said Pitts, who vows to never have that thought again.

Sometime after 11 a.m., he got a phone call from security saying there was a shooting and Colton police would like to lock down the hospital.
