I'm sorry to advise but the newest FBI update on an Active Shooter Study indicates that active shooter incidents are becoming more frequent. Active Shooter incidents have increased to 16.4 annually. I don't share this bleak information to scare you but to help prepare you by giving you the tools you and your staff need to empower and prepare, just in case, any of you are ever faced with an Active Shooter.
The FBI reports a whopping 45.6% of Active Shooter incidents took place in commercial environments followed by 24.3% in educational environments. The remaining incidents took place in places of worship, open spaces, military and other government properties, residential properties, and healthcare facilities.
The above mentioned places cover the places most of us frequent on a daily or weekly basis, so why aren't we accepting the reality of the world we live in and preparing ourselves with common sense response options that aren't common knowledge. These response options can not only help save others lives but most importantly help you save our own life and the lives of those you love.
