CISA Region 4 November Active Shooter Preparedness Workshop

November 8 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST

CISA Region 4 November Active Shooter Preparedness Workshop

THIS IS NOT A TACTICAL TRAINING COURSE

Tuesday, November 8, 2022
12:00 p.m. CST (1:00 p.m. EST)

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Region 4 (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee) invites you to join a two-hour security webinar to enhance your organization’s resilience in case of an active shooter incident.

Preparing employees for a potential active shooter event is an integral component of an organization’s incident response planning. Because active shooter incidents are unpredictable and evolve quickly, preparing for and knowing what to do in an active shooter situation can be the difference between life and death. Every second counts. 

Objectives:

  • Provide information about best practices, communications protocols, and resources that will assist stakeholders to develop or enhance their emergency planning, preparedness, and response to active shooter incidents.
  • Discuss the elements of active shooter incident response planning with guidance from expert instructors.
  • Describe common behaviors, conditions, and situations associated with active shooter events.
  • Discuss how to recognize potential workplace violence indicators. 

Understanding Liability and Risk Exposure:

The webinar focuses on providing awareness training that supports the development of emergency action planning capabilities. These capabilities may better position organizations in receiving important legal liability protections from the DHS Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies (SAFETY) Act of 2002. To learn more about the SAFETY Act and the types of products, services, and layered security programs that have received protections, visit www.safetyact.gov. Chad.Johnston@cisa.dhs.gov
