Active Shooter Preparedness

Recorded On: 07/19/2022

Most of us think we work in a home that “would never” have an active shooter event. Unfortunately – it happens... and active shooter training is a mandatory part of disaster preparation. Even if your home has a “lock down” protocol, it may not be effective. Think about your facility and which doors are unlocked and if there are (major) issues increasing risk of someone entering the facility unannounced, your team unaware.  A lot of communities want to keep active shooter training under cover and not share information about Active Shooter Event planning. It is critical that this discussion and the planning for Active Shooter Disaster be clear and open. This may be the only opportunity you have to prepare your staff and decrease the risk of a negative outcome in the event of an active shooter.  

This program will focus on key aspects of active shooter and what to do if your community experiences a threat or real-life active shooter event. Who will you call? Who will you notify? How will you deploy your staff and use additional resources? What are the keys to protecting your residents and staff? How do work, in advance, with local law enforcement? Let’s talk about that! Please join us!  

• Define an active shooter event;
• Identify strategies to protect your residents and staff;
• Discuss the importance of open lines of communication with first responders   
• Discuss media interaction/communication;
• Identify methods to establish response and recovery post-event;

Attendees will be awarded 1.0 ANCC contact hours for completing the course/webinar.
Program Start Date: 7/19/22 | Program Review Date 7/18/25
