Webinar Overview

As we slowly come out of COVID-19 shutdown, we are beginning to see incidents of active shooters on the rise again. The social conditions that drive these horrific events are not getting any better; in fact, they may have gotten worse in the past year or so. Having a response plan in place will give your employees and other occupants guidance on how they should react during the situation. A good plan will increase the chances that their reactions will be consistent with what your organization, and emergency service responders, want them to do. The objective is to avoid making a bad situation worse through panic and inappropriate reactions. Our webinar will give you the framework to develop your plan.
