Unfortunately in today’s world, an active shooter incident can happen anywhere at any time. The best ways to make sure employees and clients stay safe are to prepare ahead of time and be ready.
This poster was created using the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Homeland Security’s safety protocol for active shooter situations.
The poster provides three options for surviving an attacker:
- Run to a safe place.
- Hide in an area out of the attacker’s view.
- If there is no other option, fight the attacker aggressively, using whatever weapons are available.
Employers are only encouraged to create a plan of action for active shooters in the workplace. The Active Shooter poster can be used to support the plan of action and reinforce response procedures.
