10:30 am - 11:30 am Are You Prepared for an Active Shooter on Campus?

We’ve seen it before with tragic events that seared the names of schools and campuses into our minds — Columbine High School, West Nickel Mines Amish School, Sandy Hook Elementary School, Virginia Tech, Northern Illinois University, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and the most recent Santa Fe High School. There have been 220 school shootings since Columbine.

The current information will help campus administrators and emergency responders prepare for a potential crisis situation involving an active shooter. The ideas presented will address steps schools and campuses can take to mitigate the risk of an active shooter – including what can be done to help prevent such an event as well as what steps can be taken before, during and after a situation should it occur.

The combination of well-planned security procedures, risk assessments, crisis preparedness planning, security technology, and training can help to reduce incidents on and around school campuses.

Developed by  the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate and the Army Research Lab, the platform allows responders of all disciplines to assume discipline-based avatars and simultaneously role-play complex response scenarios.
