Joint Public Safety Response to Large-Scale Civil Unrest

Large-scale civil unrest can occur in any U.S. city, and often local public safety personnel only have a few hours’ notice to respond. Recent events have included violent and hostile actions against public safety personnel, such as protestors using fire, body fluid or chemical “bombs” and other deadly weapons. Attendees will learn about history and lessons learned from large-scale civil unrest in the U.S., threats posed to public safety, and methods for integrating fire, EMS and police rescue task forces.

Hospital Response to the Active Shooter/Active Assailant

Hospitals have not been immune to shooting events, with an average of one hospital shooting event happening each month in the U.S. This presentation will cover the history of hospital shootings, shooter profiles, hospital workplace violence statistics, perpetrator motives, response tactics for hospital staff, challenges and lessons learned.

Capable Guardian – Instruct, Evacuate, Shelter, Defend

Capable guardians are people within organizations to which others would immediately look to for guidance during an active shooter event. The term applies to teachers, hospital staff, business supervisors, security guards and more. Attendees will learn about court cases that have established expectations for capable guardians and the appropriate steps to take during an active shooter situation.
