Mass shootings seem to be more and more prevalent nowadays. As the world focuses all its attention on the “why”, we must focus our attention on how we can better prepare ourselves to not only respond to but also learn and understand key concepts that are critical in potentially preventing these tragedies within our critical infrastructure sectors and our communities alike.
The first part of the session will cover best practices for facilities such as educational campuses, offices, manufacturing facilities, warehouses and multi-structure campuses such as shopping centers/malls. The second half of the presentation will be focused on the “tactical mindset” immediately pre-attack and during an attack. This portion will cover how to process information quickly and assess your options.
Please note that this is NOT a “Run, Hide, Fight” presentation.
