About this Event

This presentation will review what to do in an active shooter situation including employer and employee responsibilities, working with first responders and coping with the effects after an incident. 


Learning objectives:


  1. Active Shooter Statistics- Dispel the notion that this won’t happen here!
  2. Employer responsibilities- OSHA requirements and recommendations and civil liabilities.
  3. Situational awareness- Planning is the key! When/ then thinking strategies.
  4. Employee responsibilities- Who is coming to save me!?
  5. Reacting to first responders- What can I expect from the police and EMT response?
  6. The aftermath- When I survive this event, will I survive the event? How to deal with the aftermath as an employer. Strategies and resources to help you carry on.
  7. Stories from the field. None of this would be as powerful without actual stories to back it up; and so we present them.
