Active Shooter Training
If there were a report of a mass shooting or active shooter event at your place of work, at home or when you are out socially? How would you respond? Do you know what to do? A rapid, safe, and successful response to a mass-shooting incident requires preparation, a lot of preparation. To protect our colleagues, our loved ones and society, we need to have a plan in place and know what to do. This course provides information, tools, and resources to assist in developing mass-shooting plan. The likelihood of a mass-shooting incident is low, but we must be prepared for these situations. Recent mass shootings and active shooting events around the world have demonstrated the need to prepare ourselves, our family, our company and our society.
Valuable Key Takeaways
Preparation is the key to a mass-shooting incident. That includes a clear idea of what your actions will be before the incident occurs. The course will first help you to understand mass-shooting incident, to develop, then to review your guidelines and procedures for responding to a mass shooting or active-shooter incident.
As with any multi hazard assessment and planning process, an exercise (tabletop or functional) would be a good mechanism for bringing all the stakeholders together to rehearse the plan once it has been completed. Many organizations have historically regarded safety and security as low priorities instead of important school/business functions and responsibilities. Recent events, including numerous mass-shouting incidents, have shattered this sense of security and complacency.
You will walk away from this course knowing what to do during a mass-shooting incident, this course is also designed to help to fill gaps in the responders’ knowledge of mass-shooting incidents and to help them prepare for, respond to, and recover from them.
