Do you have a unified, comprehensive active shooter planning, response and recovery program in place?

Mass casualty events continue to populate news feeds on an all-too-frequent basis. In response to this unwelcomed trend, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) released NFPA 3000TM (PS), Standard for an Active Shooter / Hostile Event Response (ASHER) Program in 2018. NFPA 3000 is the world’s first guidance to help communities with hostile event preparedness, response and recovery. The standard was developed by 50-plus representatives from federal agencies, law enforcement, fire, EMS, emergency management, facilities, private security, hospitals, and universities so that a broad range of authorities have defined benchmarks for their comprehensive plans, policies, and procedures.
