Active Shooter Training to Protect You, Your Employees and Your Business
Workplace Violence accounts for 16% of all work-related fatal occupational injuries and according to FBI estimates 40% of all active shooter events take place in business settings: commercial office buildings, stores, factories and warehouses. Still many businesses have outdated response plans, or no plan at all. It is a risk every business faces, and an exposure for which many are unprepared. It has become necessary to do more than implement safety protocols; employees need to learn how to react safely when faced with a violent situation.
It can happen anywhere, the movie theater, the grocery store, or even at your place of business. Active shooter incidents are unpredictable and evolve quickly. While it is unlikely that you will ever be involved in an active shooter incident, your chances for survival are best if you are prepared for the worst.
Because active shooter situations are often over before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation. In most cases, active shooters use guns and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims.
At this session, presented by Sergeant Derek Howe of the North Reading Police Department, you will learn what you need to do to prepare yourself and others around you to actively participate in your own survival.
