DHS Offers “Active Shooter Awareness” Web Event

The DHS Critical Infrastructure Learning Series is offering a new web training on Active Shooter Awareness.

Active shooters engage in killing or attempting to kill innocent and unsuspecting people in both private and public areas. In many cases, there is no pattern or method to the selection of victims by an active shooter, and these situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. To help you prepare for the possibility of an active shooter incident, the Active Shooter Awareness Virtual Roundtable will raise awareness of common triggers and characteristics of active shooters and help you understand how to prepare for potential incidents.

This free, online interactive roundtable will include video, commentary by behavioral and security experts, and a question-and-answer session. This roundtable will better prepare you to deal with an active shooter situation and to recognize dangerous behavior before it turns deadly.

Date:  Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Time:  2:00 – 3:30 pm (EDT)

Who Should Attend:  Security staff, private sector owners and operators, government agencies and organizations, and employees from all industries

Sign Up:  Register and log in through Visual Webcaster to participate in this important, interactive virtual roundtable. A limited number of phone lines will be available for participants, so please plan to listen online using either your computer’s speakers or headphones.

Registration closes September 23, 2011.  For more information, contact  activeshooterawareness@dhs.gov.
