Preparing for and Responding to Emergencies

Workplace and public venue violence incidents have been notable in recent years. Whether an Independence Day Parade in Highland Park, Illinois, or a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, or school shootings in almost every corner of the United States, organizations seek appropriate responses to the threats of active shooter incidents through changes in physical environment, emergency planning and education. This session focuses on what townships can do to be prepared for active shooter threats in their organizations’ offices or program delivery sites. Experts will provide training on crisis response, threat awareness, risk management and individual response during an active shooter scenario.
