Workshop: Dealing with Today's Active Shooters

Under today’s threat environment active shootings have unfortunately maintained a very deadly and real threat for businesses and communities. Regardless of the business model or size, employees and guests have fallen victim to these vicious attacks that occur without warning or impunity. This hands-on workshop will focus on how a business and its employees are not silent observers in deadly emergencies, but a valuable partner who can provide clarity, assistance, and guidance to the first responder community.

Learning outcomes for this session include:

  1. Gain clarity on the business and employee response based on specific business offerings, while also considering the ‘duty of care’ responsibility which may hold the company liable for inaction, indecisiveness or inadequate training.
  2. Determine how the method of “run, hide and fight” approach works under various business models and which liability exposures need to be addressed immediately in most organizations.

This workshop will be held April 04, 2017 from 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM at the Sands Expo & Convention Center. Presenting with Scaglione will be David La Rose, Director Safety/Security and Emergency Management for Lakeland Regional Hospital and C. David Shepherd, CEO of Readiness Resource Group.
