Registration, Networking, Lunch: 11:15 AM – 12 PM
Luncheon presentation 12:00 – 1:00 pm
We often associate active shooter incidents with schools, but most people aren’t aware that active shooter incidents happen at businesses twice as often. These events can dramatically impact operations, lives, and communities. While we may feel as though we have no control over this alarming trend, organizational leaders are obligated to prepare their organizations to respond if faced with such a situation. In this session, we’ll discuss how to gather, assess, and synthesize external environmental information related to active shooter incidents to ultimately guide your organization through strategic decisions that will improve the company’s competitive advantage to stay in business, should such a tragic event occur. Attendees will gain knowledge regarding best available risk management strategies regarding this topic, including avoidance, mitigation, and acceptance.
- Understand the definition and anatomy of active shooters.
- Assess organizational practices to determine if appropriate risk management strategies are in place.
- Create an action plan to avoid or minimize the impact of tragic incidents, including emergency drills.
