Workshop presented by Datu Mike Morton

December 10th 1-2pm

Every individual can help prevent and prepare for potential active shooter situations. This presentation provides guidance to individuals including managers and employees, so that they can prepare to respond to an active shooter situation.

An active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and other populated area. In most cases, active shooters use firearms and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly.

This course is not written for law enforcement officers, but for non-law enforcement personnel.

  1. Describe actions to take when confronted with an active shooter and responding law enforcement officials.
  2. Describe actions to take to prevent and prepare for potential active shooter incidents.
  3. Describe how to manage the consequences of an active shooter incident.
