Presentation  Title - Active Attacker Training

Synopsis - The term “Active Attacker” is used instead of “Active Shooter” as active shooter does not cover the range of weapons that could be used to inflict harm on others. Preparing your colleagues for an active attacker incident involves more than just individual knowledge. This presentation will cover both individual and organizational response options, including an overview of a plausible tabletop exercise for senior management.

Key Points that an Attendee will take away from Carine's presentation:

  • The critical elements of Run-Hide-Fight in response to an active attack
  • An example of an active attacker tabletop exercise for senior leaders
  • Suggestions on how to work with local emergency services in response to such an attack
  • What you can do in this type of scenario to mitigate risk or injury to yourself and your colleagues
  • Current statistics on these types of incidents
