Evolving Strategies in Active Shooter Mitigation

Thu, Mar 14, 2019 1:00 PM EDT{LOCAL_TZ}

Given the number of mass shootings suffered by the nation in recent years and the growing threat of gun-based workplace violence, security professionals have been forced to reevaluate their approach to active shooter mitigation. While “Run, Hide, Fight” remains a tried and true philosophy, training for these worse-case scenarios has evolved from classroom-based lectures and tabletop exercises among senior leaders to now include all of the stakeholders in a given environment. In fact, active shooter drills are now as commonplace in some organizations and educational campuses as a fire drill used to be. Organizations are also finding more pressure to exert their “Duty of Care” obligation towards individuals working and doing business in their respective facilities.

The role of security technology has also grown more prominent with the proliferation of gunshot detection systems and other solutions designed to speed emergency response; however, nothing can serve as a substitute for hands-on training and understanding what needs to be done during an actual emergency event. In this webinar, you will hear from corporate and school security experts who will discuss how active shooter mitigation strategies are changing and what you need to do to stay ahead of the curve and how to fulfill fiduciary Duty of Care. 

Attendees will also have an opportunity to earn CEU credits for attending this webinar.
