LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hundreds of city fire captains have been trained to oversee rescue teams during mass shootings after last year's Los Angeles airport rampage.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the ambitious project is outlined in an "after-action" report to be presented Tuesday to the city's fire commissioners.

The report like others before it criticizes the emergency response to the November rampage that left a federal security officer dead and three people injured for a lack of communication, coordination and clear command.

It says that the new mass-shooting leadership training was given to all the department's captains in response. The report also says the agency has begun training with police to improve coordination.

Suspect Paul Ciancia has pleaded not guilty to 11 federal charges including murder of a federal officer.
