Preparing for an Active Shooter


The emotional pressures of everyday life impact individuals at home and employees in the workplace. Some individuals are unable to control their emotions and violence erupts toward co-employees, customers or third parties. The unfortunate statistics show that homicide is the number one cause of death for women in the workplace and the third overall cause for men and women. This trend is expected to increase in times of social and political unrest.

 Since active shooter situations develop quickly and provide little or no warning, it is difficult to prepare for them, but developing a plan for your organization and practicing it can make a difference in saving lives.
