Active shooter incidents have become a growing source of concern in recent years. By their nature these situations are unpredictable and chaotic, making it difficult for employers to prepare. Even though the odds of an active shooter event occurring in the workplace are low, fears about these situations can lower employee morale and create anxiety and uncertainty for your staff. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recommend active shooter training for all employees to help counter these fears, and to reinforce a "whole community" approach to preventing and responding to workplace violence. Training helps employees feel prepared and empowered to respond quickly if an active shooter situation occurs on the job. This course is designed to help learners in any industry recognize recommended actions to take during an active shooter event, as well as common secondary concerns such as providing first aid for common injuries and communicating with emergency responders. This course focuses on the Run, Hide, Fight program for reacting to an active shooter situation. While Run, Hide, Fight is a good set of guidelines for active, healthy adults, it may not be suitable for all people in all situations. SafetySkills assumes no liability for any injuries or damage that could occur while attempting these techniques. This course is presented in English and Spanish.
