The Active Shooter: Planning, Preparing, and Recovering

From SLA Connect

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security defines active shooter as “an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area; in most cases, active shooters use firearms(s) [sic] and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims.”

A sad fact of modern life is that such events can happen anywhere, at any time, to anyone. You may have heard that the best advice during an active shooter event is to run–hide–fight, in that order. (For more information about this simple strategy, look at any of several short videos on active shooter response at www.drc-group.com/project/jitt-asi.html

But what about after such a terrible event? What should you be prepared to do then?

A new webinar, “Active Shooter Consequence Management,” available from the Safe+Ready Institute, will help you create a process to address all of the important aspects of recovering from an active shooter incident. The presenter, Chris Floyd, covers such important topics as public information, managing recovery using the Incident Command System (ICS), employee/family assistance, death notification, and continuity of operations.

You can access this webinar at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7Orh-uJTAY . Additional disaster training materials specific to library/museum facilities can be found at www.drc-group.com/project/jitt.html

– This message is from SLA’s Emergency Preparedness & Recovery Advisory Council (EPRAC), whose goal is to help SLA members prepare for and recover from the effects of natural disasters and other emergencies. We will occasionally share information about emergency preparedness resources we think might be of interest to the greater SLA community.
