Planning for the Unthinkable

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


February 15, 2017

It’s one of the most unthinkable, unimaginable, worstcase-scenario things that you could ever find yourself in the middle of, but have you thought about what you would do in the event of an active shooter? Our staff recently had active shooter response training. Though workplace violence did decrease in 2016 it still accounted for 12.9% of all aggravated assaults committed in the U.S. and is something everyone should have training for in the event of the unthinkable arising.

The commonly accepted response to an active shooter is Run. Hide. Fight. and is encouraged by police departments across the country.

In many areas you can contact your local police department for a presentation on workplace violence and surviving active shooter situations. It’s an uncomfortable topic that we may not want to talk about but it’s certainly a topic that we need to talk about. Contact your CalNonprofits Insurance Services account manager if you have any questions.

About the Author

  • Founded in 1984 as a subsidiary of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits), CalNonprofits Insurance Services was established during a time of diminishing insurance options for nonprofits. One of the driving reasons for establishing the association was to use the collective influence of the sector to secure more stable and quality insurance. We have developed, and are known for, our wide spectrum of services reflecting expertise in both the insurance and nonprofit sectors, our superior customer service, and our development of exclusive insurance products, including a highly successful dental and vision trust. We insure more than 1,200 nonprofit organizations throughout California and we are the only California brokerage specializing in insurance for nonprofits. Our clients range from newly established nonprofits all the way to venerable organizations with multiple locations statewide.
