Workplace Intruder Action Planning

This four-hour training seminar will guide you through the emergency action planning process so organizations can understand the realities of risk management and take action to identify the risks they face, develop solutions to address vulnerabilities, train their employees to survive a violent intruder (commonly referred to as “active shooter”) incident, and how to recover from an event. We will examine case studies of real events and the lessons learned from them, apply the concepts of layered security and situational awareness and reflect on your organization’s current security posture.
