Get Critical Insights, Life-Saving Skills and Strategies for Dealing with Active Shooter Threats
The frequency of active shooter incidents have increased in recent years along with the numbers injured and killed. Columbine, the Aurora movie theater, Sandy Hook, and the Orlando nightclub are just a few examples of this terrifying trend. And on October 1, 2017, the Las Vegas shooting became the worst in U.S. history, leaving 58 innocent people dead and nearly 500 wounded. When these unthinkable acts occur, every second counts, and unfortunately it takes police minutes to respond. Workplaces, schools, and even citizens out at theaters and malls should have a plan of what they can do to stay alive during these critical minutes before law enforcement arrives. These are the few minutes that can often mean the difference between lives being saved and lives being lost.
Don’t be caught unprepared during one of these unthinkable events. Learn how to prepare yourself and your employees to respond to an active shooter attack. In fact, recent court rulings pertaining to active shootings have allowed plaintiffs who were victims of active shooting events to proceed with suits alleging negligence on the part of employers, as well as failing to provide defensive training to employees. Employers cannot shirk their corporate responsibility for providing training to their employees on how to spot active shooters and how to react if faced with one.
