DHS Active Shooter Preparedness Workshop - Forest Hill, Maryland



THIS IS NOT A TACTICAL TRAINING COURSE

Given today's ever-changing threat environment, preparing for and training employees to cope with active threats and workplace violence should be a key piece of an organization's emergency action plan.

A Unique Training Opportunity

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

  • Communication and Incident Planning for employees;
