When it comes to an active shooter scenario, there is not a one size fits all plan of prevention and action. Learn how to plan for your facility's unique challenges regarding vulnerable patient populations, type of patient care, facility size and location, entrances, exits and type of security measures.
An active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and 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. Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the shooting and mitigate harm to the victims. Because active shooter situations are often over with 10-15 minutes, before law enforcement arrives, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation.
Immediately choose the best way to protect you and your patient’s life. Very quickly make your best determination of what is occurring and which of the options below will provide the greatest degree of security for you employing the RUN, HIDE, or FIGHT protocol. Come with questions and leave with answers in this class designed to help you save lives presented by Damon Jackson, Commissioned Security Officer, Master Peace Officer, Personal Protection Officer and TCLEOSE Basic Instructor.
The day will conclude with patient communication topics essential for any healthcare situation.
