Protecting people in an Active Shooter/Attacker incident requires careful planning and regular training.
Our program starts with an analysis of the organization’s particular needs and a hazard assessment.
Involving stakeholders from different aspects of the organization is important in the planning process and for ongoing evaluation and updating the plan to meet changing needs.
Enhancing physical attributes to stop or at least slow down an attacker is critical to success as is involving local law enforcement and other emergency services.
Training all staff and the entire community on an ongoing basis is another key to success. Include regular drills and table top exercises with you planning committee.
