Sadly, responding to and managing mass casualties situations is a topic of growing importance in American life.
The number of shooting incidents is increasing. Children in every school in America, as well as their teachers and administrators, practice and prepare for these events a number of times each year. Businesses are increasingly preparing for these types of incidents. This is becoming a crucial area of study and knowledge in crisis communications.
I serve on a task force at ASIS International, a global association of security practitioners in developing standards for response to violent incidents involving employees and other scenarios. My focus is always on managing the victims and survivors.
I saw this presentation in person at a MN ASIS monthly meeting in Minneapolis and was truly startled by its helpfulness and clarity. Dr. Grant Duwe, the author of this unique study, is a very calm, reassuring and impressive presenter. Give him a call.
