Active Shooter Case Study: Lessons In Emergency Planning & Communications

In 2013, Jeff Trask served as an emergency management administrator during an active shooter event at a college campus.

This recorded webinar takes a detailed look at the emergency management team’s emergency preparedness planning and communications strategy and how they were able to react quickly.

During this 60-minute session, you’ll learn how:

  • Using an ENS enabled them to quickly lock down the college campus and protect the campus community
  • The entire emergency management response was run via a virtual Emergency Operations Center
  • In-depth emergency planning helped them quickly respond to the incident
  • Emergency communications, including pre-planned alerts, helped officials react within minutes of the shooting
