A weapon. A crime scene. The loss of a loved one.
What image appeared in your head?
These are two words you never want associated when referencing your school or campus. But they are connected too often with real world events. We’ve witnessed episodes of violence in schools, universities, churches, factories, office buildings and restaurants; no organization is immune. Are you prepared to respond to an incident of violence?
Last month in part one of this two-part series, Firestorm experts discussed BeRThA®, a program that prevents a weapon from entering the door by identifying behaviors of concern before an incident of violence.
But what happens when violence does strike? You must act. Does your organization have a violence response program that incorporates a complete shut-down after an incidence of violence occurs? Incidences of mass violence, even if unrelated to your specific location, can close your campus for weeks.
Why are we waiting for the weapon to arrive? The time to plan is now – not when you have to make a call to someone stating their loved one will not be returning home. Let’s prevent and plan before violence. This month, Firestorm Chief Security Officer and former Secret Service Agent, Jason Russell, will walk attendees through preparedness best practices and action steps to take when violence enters your door.
