The Lifecycle of an Active Shooter Incident
Emergency management, security and other professionals concerned with the evolving active shooter threat can best prepare their organizations by understanding the complete life-cycle of active shooter incidents and aligning critical risk indicators with the traditional phases of emergency management. There are important action steps in mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery that can help leaders and decision-makers anticipate the phase-specific challenges in detecting, deterring, responding to and recovering from shooting incidents and other forms of violence directed at their organizations and personnel. This one-hour webinar introduces the most current thinking in early threat recognition, workforce training and effective intervention before, during and after an active shooter incident. Topics discussed include:
- Updates on evolving active shooter incident characteristics and dynamics
- Adapting the standard model of workplace violence to today’s threat environment
- Phase-specific tasks for leaders in mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery
- Expanding role of bystander intervention
