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.
