Active-Shooter Preparedness

Training course

An active-shooter incident can occur at any time or place. During 2012 alone, mass shootings occurred in the U.S. in a movie theater, a temple, an elementary school, and other locations where the victims were taken off guard.

Proper active-shooter 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 training course is intended to prepare managers and employees to respond to a potential or actual active shooter.
