Preventing & Preparing for the Active Shooter
Paul Timm, Author of School Security: How to Build and Strengthen a School Safety Program
Shots fired! The specter of an active shooter incident is one of the top issues that cause administrators to lose sleep. Years ago, schools adopted lockdown procedures designed to delay the shooter’s access to students and staff until law enforcement officers could affect the situation. The objective of locking down the facility and securing people in classrooms was to mitigate losses and delay the movement of the shooter. In response to more recent active shooter incidents several response alternatives to lockdown have gained momentum. Methods, such as “Run, Hide, Fight,” attempt to empower administrators, teachers, and even students to make quick decisions.
Which active shooter response method is most effective?
What is the right way to decide?
How do issues, such as student age and liability concerns, factor into the decision making process?
These and other questions will be explored and addressed in an interactive environment.
