Active Shooter Workshop-Duluth, MN


Does your organization have a plan for an active shooter event or hostage taking?  Given today’s ever-changing threat environment, preparing for and training employees to cope with workplace violence should be a key piece of an organization’s incident response planning.

A Unique Training Opportunity

The College of St. Scholastica and the National Protection and Programs Directorate Office of Infrastructure Protection within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, are hosting a one-day Security Workshop to enhance awareness of, and response to, an active shooter event:

  • Educating participants on the history of active shooter events. 
  • Describing common behavior, conditions, and situations associated with active shooters.
  • Fostering communication between critical infrastructure owners and operators and local emergency response teams, this includes discussion of interoperability, communications protocols, and best practices for planning, preparedness, and response.

Building Emergency Planning Capabilities

The event will also describe how to incorporate key elements of successful incident management into planning efforts, including:

  • Communicating with and accounting for employees;
  • Building familiarity with local responders and knowing their capabilities;
  • Coordinating with first responders before, during, and after an incident; and
  • Integrating public affairs into incident management. 

Who Should Participate?

  • Corporate and facility security professionals from the private and public sectors
  • Supervisory first responders
  • Homeland security representatives
