Mass shootings, though rare, happen without warning and demand instant action and Active Shooter Training gives team members a crucial advantage and can help save lives should an incident occur. This series, customized for the multifamily industry, is based on best-practice information for Active Shooter from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It teaches the recommended run-hide-fight strategy applicable to an active shooter situation in progress. It also covers the creation of an active shooter emergency plan and steps to take in the short-term and long-term recovery phases following an active shooter incident. Each Active Shooter Training module is approximately 5-20 minutes. Available in Spanish (S).
- What’s Your Strategy?
Active Shooter Sneak Peek Video:
Active shooter events tend to be volatile and unfold quickly. They may be over in as little as 10 to 15 minutes, sometimes before law enforcement arrives on the scene. Because of this, you need to think quickly and know your options in advance. Once you know about the most serious possibilities, you can modify your response for different threat levels, such as the alert of an active shooter at a nearby property or business.
Can an active shooter incident be prevented?
There are no guarantees, but these activities and programs discussed in this training may reduce the risk.
Implement screening and background checks for prospective residents and potential employees. This helps address many risks to the community, not just the risk of violence. Learn to recognize the pattern of behaviors that may occur before violent actions. The Department of Homeland Security’s Pathway to Violence training provides more information.
