Individuals, organizations and communities must understand and prepare for the changing nature of the active shooter threat, and enhance their capabilities to respond and recover from incidents of mass violence of all types.
Domestic violence incidents and International terrorist events over the past years have demonstrated the potential for complex and devastating attacks in crowded gathering places.
Discussion of active shooter incidents has increasingly included the importance of preparing for additional weapons involvement beyond firearms, such as explosives, knives and other edged weapons, and even vehicles.
In Active Shooter Incidents the “response gap” is the time between when the first shot is fired and the arrival of police and other emergency responders. The dynamics of the incident change quickly when police arrive and shooter transitions from being the hunter to the hunted. Roughly half of such events end with the shooter taking their own life. In the response gap, those inside the active shooter incident are the initial first responders, and what they do or don’t do can have life and death consequences.
