Active Shooter Preparedness
January 17, 2013
Bookmark and Share

I was sent the following earlier today by Dave Holcomb:

 

Today, DHS released a new website dedicated to Active Shooter Preparedness.  The site is located at the following link:  http://www.dhs.gov/activeshooter .  Please keep for your own personal reference and feel free to share with your partners and stakeholders as widely as possible. 

 

I would ask that if you are in a position to disseminate to a wider audience, such as WSFC, BOMA, Seattle Shield, WASPC, EMD External Affairs, Eastside Security Forum, Ports FSO, Homeland Security Regions, any other association/organization, that you please consider listing to your website or forward to your membership.   

 

The purpose and a list of resources currently included on the site are listed below: 

 

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) aims to enhance preparedness through a ”whole community” approach by providing training, products, and resources to a broad range of stakeholders on issues such as active shooter awareness, incident response, and workplace violence. In many cases, there is no pattern or method to the selection of victims by an active shooter, and these situations are by their very nature are unpredictable and evolve quickly. DHS offers free courses, materials, and workshops to better prepare you to deal with an active shooter situation and to raise awareness of behaviors that represent pre-incident indicators and characteristics of active shooters.

 

On this page:

  • Active Shooter: What Can You Do Course
  • Active Shooter Webinar
  • Active Shooter Workshop Series
  • Active Shooter: How to Respond Resource Materials
  • Options for Consideration Active Shooter Training Video
  • U.S. Secret Service (USSS) Active Shooter Related Research
  • Active Shooter Resources for Law Enforcement and Trainers: Request for Access to Joint Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Portal
