Proactive approaches to dealing with an ever-changing threat environment as well as rapid responses are in keeping with today's best practices.

Current events across the county dramatically illustrate that no one is immune to this tragic possibility. These dynamic situations require bold, immediate, and sometimes unconventional responses. This program presents the necessary components of preparation strategies that include planning, prevention, mitigation, and response to active shooters. Your company must embrace the importance of preparing for and rehearsing what is known as a "survival mindset." Best practices are discussed throughout the program.
Current economic stressors can potentially serve as "tipping points" for active shooter incidents. Don't take a chance—prepare for the worst.
