Emergency Preparedness: Active Shooter and Armed Intruder Training for Healthcare Practices
The shooting in Las Vegas earlier this week has many of us questioning if there is anywhere we're actually safe. The victims of this horrifying incident were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Although there are some things we can't control, with some help, there are some situations we CAN protect ourselves from.
This training is designed to help you prepare should you be faced with an active shooter or intruder. We hope it helps you avoid a tragic situation. Our hearts go out to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting and their families. To help them through this horrific event, a portion of the proceeds from this training will be sent to the Las Vegas Victims' Fund. Thank you for helping us help them.
Unfortunately, your medical practice is not immune to gun violence, and closing your eyes and hoping it never happens to you is NOT the answer. Obviously, you can’t stop random acts of violence, but being prepared and knowing how to respond to an active shooter or armed intruder event is the key to survival—and survival is no accident.
The way to ensure you’re prepared is to include active shooter and armed intruder scenario guidelines to your Emergency Preparedness Compliance Plan. Considering you’re dealing with life and death, tackling this on your own, really isn’t an option.
That’s where national healthcare safety, security, and risk management expert, Steve Wilder, BA, CHSP, STS, can help. For the last 32 years, Steve has helped healthcare professionals protect themselves, their patients and their coworkers. During his 90-minute online training session, you’ll learn exactly how to improve your chances of survival should you ever end up in an active shooter or armed intruder situation.
