Active Shooter Preparedness

  • Tuesday, November 01, 2016

Colleges, hospitals, government institutions and business enterprises of every kind face difficult challenges today in keeping people and property safe and secure – and that includes being prepared for the possibility of an Active Shooter scenario.

As part of our concern for the safety and protection of our customers and the communities we serve, Tyco SimplexGrinnell has invited two speakers with extensive life safety, emergency management and active shooter experience to speak on this important topic: “Active Shooter Preparedness”.

This live, interactive webinar is intended for those involved in security and life safety – security and facilities directors, directors of public safety, campus safety executives, building owners, facilities managers and others.

Join us to hear first-hand experience of how a county handled an active shooter situation. Learn about how the county’s collaboration with federal and state officials and what technologies were used in protecting its citizens. Attendees will develop a deeper understanding of the importance of training, preparation and preventive measures in working to provide a safe and secure environment.

When seconds count…learn what can make a difference from those who have lived it.
