They are sizing up and selecting their strike points in schools, churches, concerts, libraries, courthouses, public and private places of business. If you or your facility does not have a plan to counter this threat, the risk to your vulnerable population is extreme.

“In 2017 there were 30 separate active shootings in the United States, the largest number ever recorded by the FBI during a one year period. With so many attacks occurring, it can become easy to believe that nothing can be done to stop an active shooter determined to commit violence.” Report Excerpt
We know this assumption of helplessness is invalid. The last child to die in a school fire in the US was in 1958. This amazing outcome was the result of comprehensive efforts to improve school fire safety. We believe the answer for preventing and mitigating the harm perpetrated by active shooters is everywhere around us.
