Active Shooter Training for Businesses
Do your employees have the tools, knowledge and confidence to feel safe?
When business owners and managers think about safety, they often consider strategies to avoid conflict in the workplace. While this is a good start, it does little to prevent active shooter situations from occurring.
For this reason, it is extremely important that businesses of all sizes provide their staff with training to identify red flags, prevent active shootings, and react with effective strategies to reduce harm and damages.
Is Your Business Prepared For the Unthinkable?
While the chances of your business being the victim of an active shooter are relatively small, you could make the same argument about fires or floods. Does this mean that you shouldn’t get insurance? Of course not.
Instead, you should prepare for the unthinkable to prevent or, at the very least, greatly reduce the consequences of an active shooter incident.
With National VIPS, you can get the knowledge and training required to keep your organization safe and minimize the risk associated with active shooters or other violent intruders.
Why Businesses of All Sizes Need Active Shooter Training
Unless you have completely ignored the news, you know that shootings in public places and businesses are on the rise. Though businesses with more foot traffic are typically bigger targets, it all depends on the intent of the shooter.
Some violent individuals are former or even current employees of a company that decides to cause violence in the workplace. As a result, virtually every business with a physical location and staff can benefit from active shooter training.
