Program Description
The threat of an active shooter event continues to evolve in its frequency and complexity. From the Texas Bell Tower attack involving a single shooter in a single location, to the Paris, San Bernardino and Orlando attacks, increasingly with multiple shooters moving to multiple locations, leaders and crisis responders must continually adapt to this ever-changing threat. It is no longer enough to simply prepare employees to Run, Hide or Fight. The “Active Shooter 2.0” program introduces the important action steps involved in Stopping the Killing, Stopping the Dying, and Stopping the Crying. This presentation will discuss the most up to date approaches for organizations in implementing plans, procedures and exercise to ensure an effective, integrated response to potentially overwhelming active shooter events.

To ensure that participants have an opportunity to apply the principles presented during the morning session, an afternoon Table Top Exercise will be conducted to allow the participants to engage in active discussion and model action steps of a community response.

THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THIS PROGRAM.
