If you have an Active Shooter response program in place, that is great. If you have robust controls in place I applaud you for considering your employees!

New digital tools are especially useful with active shooter identification and response. For example, I use a active shooter system with sensors that accurately detect a gunshot. It can alert me, security, safety and people in harms way instantly (if configured properly) to the specific location of a shooter. For my special report on my favorite active shooter detection systems and ways to integrate with mass notification systems and IoT alarms and digital wall screens please click here ADD LINK TO SPECIAL REPORT.

In addition, your employees must know best practices when confronted with an active shooter scenario. Provide them with that guidance.

Professional in-person training seminars and classes can be potentially life-saving. One of the active shooter response classes I took was at my local library given by a top professional. It was well worth the time!!!

A valuable booklet is the Homeland Security Active Shooter – How to Respond booklet. https://www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/active_shooter_booklet.pdf

Your employees will appreciate your concern for their safety and security!
