Homeland Security experts were in Pueblo Monday to train local officials for those very situations.

Security officials say communication is key.

Homeland Security Specialist, Kelly Casias says he travel the country preparing towns for the worst.

"No. I mean nobody expects for this to happen", says Casias.

Pueblo officials took notes as Casias taught authorities how to communicate with different agencies everywhere.

"Whether they're from New York City or L.A. When we come together we're all talking the same language", says Chief of Police Jim Billings.

Security experts say all agencies everywhere must be on the same page.
