An Active Shooter situation is a living nightmare for everyone involved. It is crucial for businesses to have a preparedness plan in place that ensures employees are trained on emergency procedures should they ever need to use them. As the New Year kicks off, developing and strengthening an Active Shooter plan should be at the top of every business’s list of resolutions.
Nearly half of all Active Shooter incidents occur at a place of business, but almost 80% of such companies admit that they are not fully prepared if such an event unfolded at their location.
There are steps that can be taken, however, to ensure your company is prepared. Start by formulating a plan that addresses all possible Active Shooter scenarios. Practice the plan to improve familiarity and hold regular follow-up drills so that the best course of action becomes second nature.
