This course will help delegates at all three stages of a response; preparing for, responding to, and dealing with the outcome of an active shooter incident.


The Stages of Active Shooter Training for Workplace Operations

#1 Preparing for an Active Shooter Incident

The first stage in our training course is to ensure that you and your team are fully prepared for an active shooter incident.

This involves putting cutting-edge measures, procedures, and processes in place. Specific roles and responsibilities of each member of your response team will be clearly defined to make sure that everyone understands the correct individual and team movements and operational formations.

#2 Responding to an Active Shooter Incident

The next stage is to make sure you and your team know what actions to take when confronted by an active shooter.

During training, we will cover each team member’s individual responsibilities and delegates will learn how to be able to assist the emergency services in a way which facilitates the best possible outcome.

We will also cover the importance of why a tightly-defined system of command is essential in delivering a coordinated and effective incident response.

#3 Dealing with the Outcome of an Active Shooter Incident

The consequences of an active shooter incident can be catastrophic so it’s extremely important to understand how to deal with the outcome effectively.

From supporting victims to liaising with the media, we can give you and your team the knowledge you need to continue managing the incident in a way that protects people and your brand in the best possible way once it has come to an end.
