Active shooters are individuals who are intent on killing people in a confined and populated area. These situations are unpredictable, are usually over in 10-15 minutes, and end before law enforcement can arrive on the scene. Other types of incidents are just as unpredictable could last hours or even days depending on the type of threat or issue.
Will your employees and workforce know what to do?
Everyone must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation or incident and be proactive in the response options. Experts agree that active shooter situation avoidance and incident response training can drastically increase survivability. Further more, reduce companies risks and liablitiy.
As an employer, keeping your employees safe is a priority that cannot be taken lightly. Companies that provide employees with shooter situation avoidance and incident response training ensure all employees are prepared for (and potentially capable of preventing) an active shooter situation or incident.
Creating a thorough plan is critical, and to be effective, plans must be tailored for each company and location. However, having a procedural “plan” in place is not enough, because your active shooter and incident response plans require constant evaluation, updating, and like fire drills, repetitive practice. In many instances, the shooter or perpetrator is a former employee, thus he/she is familiar with the procedures and may react accordingly; that said, if a company has very effect and exercised measures in place, a prospective shooter or perpetrator may decide against this horrible action.
