The frequency of active shooter incidents have increased in recent years, and these incidents has occurred numerous locations, in our schools, workplaces, places of worship, shopping malls, public meetings, movie theaters and now hospitals.
Active shooter/assailant situations are dynamic and quickly evolve. Often, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the aggressive action of a shooter and to mitigate harm to potential victims. However; active shooter situations are also frequently over prior to the arrival of law enforcement. We must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation prior to law enforcement arrival. These events highlight the need to reduce the risk of active shooter/assailant incidents while improving preparedness and strengthening ongoing efforts intended to prevent future occurrences. Mitigation and having an Emergency Action Plan is critical in prevention and response to such events.
