Webinar Outline

An active shooter in the workplace is the most lethal form of workplace violence and requires a very targeted response plan for the organization and its occupants. Each person needs to know how to react, what their survival options are, and what they do is consistent with what the organization and the police want them to do.

Your employees and other building occupants have questions. Is it better to evacuate or lockdown? When is hiding a good idea vs. evacuating? Where do we go once we are out? How will we know this is going on in the facility? You need to have training and a plan that provides the answers. Developing a strategy is not a 'one size fits all' approach. Our webinar will give you the basic steps in developing a response plan that is specific to your facility and consistent with what emergency services in your area will want you to do.
