Managing The Aftermath Of An Active Shooter Event


The standard response time for first responders in the United States is on average 4 to 11 minutes. That’s less time than it takes to microwave a potato — and yet it still isn’t fast enough in an active shooter event.

According to a 2013 FBI study, almost 70% of gun-related active assailant events last JUST FIVE MINUTES. A third of those last LESS THAN TWO MINUTES.

However, the aftermath of an incident is much longer, extremely complex, and emotionally demanding not only on the victims’ families, employees, community but the management staff. To recover from an active shooter event, restore business operations, and retain employees, experts say businesses must be prepared and have a plan to effectively deal with the post-event.
