Addressing the Risk of an Active Shooter

 


“Active shooter” and workplace violence events are on the rise but there are steps you can take to mitigate their impact.

Active shooter and workplace violence events are on the rise but there are steps you can take to mitigate their impact.

Between 2000 and 2012, 110 active shooter events occurred in the US, according to the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training Center at Texas State University. Business locations were the most frequent settings for these attacks, followed by schools. And the frequency of active shooter events appears to be increasing. An incident can occur quickly — often in less than 15 minutes — during which time assailants can cause significant harm.

Though it is impossible to predict when or if an active shooter will target your organization, there are steps you can take now to mitigate the damage if an event were to occur.

In “Addressing the Risk of an Active Shooter,” we cover several issues to help you to mitigate the exposure, including:

  • Measures to employ after an event to mitigate the damage to your organization.
  • How to understand insurance coverage and its potential limitations in the event of workplace violence.
