Additional information from Tim McIntyre on:
DHS WEBSITE focused on ACTIVE SHOOTER PREPAREDNESS -
DHS released a new website dedicated to Active Shooter Preparedness. The site is located at the following link: http://www.dhs.gov/activeshooter.
Please keep for your own personal reference and feel free to share with your partners and stakeholders as widely as possible.
Resources currently included:
To enhance preparedness through a “whole community” approach DHS is providing training, products, and resources to a broad range of stakeholders. In many cases there is no pattern or method to victim selection by an active shooter.
These situations are by their very nature unpredictable and evolve quickly. DHS offers free courses, materials, and workshops to better prepare you to deal with an active shooter situation and to raise awareness of behaviors that represent pre-incident indicators and characteristics of active shooters.
