    Course Overview:

    On an average, NYC gets 100 threats communicated every day. Out of these, 6 result in deployment of the NYPD bomb squad-every day-mostly to workplaces, not to your apartment. Maybe you're not NYC, but threats from bombs and suspicious packages are constant and foreseeable emergencies for your workplace and your surroundings anywhere in America. FBI and NYPD report that Active Shooter incidents have quadrupled in 2013-16 versus the previous five-years’ average. 70% of Active Shooters are in workplaces versus campuses. 3 people die and 3+ are injured in the average Active Shooter incident. Active shooters strike malls, high rises, healthcare and factories as well as campuses. Your response is dramatically different at each site.  Bo will profile the likely perpetrator, likely motives and then explain how you should plan and train your employees to stay safe. With the help of this training session, you will be able to keep your personnel safe from workplace violence, especially Active Shooters.
