Name: Planning and Response To Mass Shooting Incidents Followed By Red-Blue Team Exercise
Date: 4th of December 2018
Course objective – morning session
Preparation is the key to a mass-shooting incident. That includes a clear idea of what your actions will be before the incident occurs. The course will first help you to understand mass-shooting incident, to develop, then to review your guidelines and procedures for responding to a massshooting or active-shooter incident. As with any multihazard assessment and planning process, an exercise (tabletop or functional) would be a good mechanism for bringing all the stakeholders together to rehearse the plan once it has been completed. Many organizations have historically regarded safety and security as low priorities instead of important school/business functions and responsibilities. Recent events, including numerous mass-shouting incidents, have shattered this sense of security and complacency. You will walk away from this course knowing what to do during a mass- shooting incident, this course is also designed to help to fill gaps in the responders’ knowledge of mass-shooting incidents and to help them prepare for, respond to, and recover from them.
Red-blue team exercises – afternoon session
The exercise will be based on different scenario’s with the focus on response towards a series of attack methods with your facility as the target but also how to respond towards an attack nearby your facility, when your location is in the area of the "outer cordon".
- What happens in the first 10 minutes?
- How crucial are the first few minutes during the incident
- Who is the decision maker?
- What are the tasks of the “crisis team”?
- How to communicate with your own staff
- How to handle external influence
- How to assist when law enforcement arrives
- What happens in the first 30 minutes?
- What happens in the next hour after the incident?
- How to deal with the aftermath?
We will also conduct a blue team – red team drill where one team does the preparation for executing an attack and the other team will try to prevent and detect within the means available to them in the facility where the exercise is being conducted. These exercises will demonstrate the efficiency of well tested SOP’s and how Emergency preparedness can save lives.
Special feature: Table top exercise and demonstration of improvised explosive devices and components.
What will you get after the workshop:
- Certificate of attendance
- Active Shooter Emergency Action Plan Guide
- 1 * A2 size "Active shooter and raids" awarness poster
