Active-Shooter Preparedness

Training course

Geography Covered: Americas | Duration: 30 minutes

An active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populared area. An active shooter incident can occur at any time or place. Proper active-shooter preparedness training, planning, and preparation may help to reduce the probability of an active-shooter event in a workplace or school — and it may minimize the negative impact of such an incident if one occurs.

This Active-Shooter Preparedness training course is intended to help managers and employees anticipate and respond appropriately to an active-shooter situation, manage the consequences of an active-shooter incident, and recognize potential workplace-violence indicators so that these types of incidents may be prevented.
