Workplace Violence Training

Preparing employees for a potential active shooter incident is an integral component of an organization’s incident response planning. Because active shooter incidents are unpredictable and evolve quickly, preparing for and knowing what to do in an active shooter situation can be the difference between life and death. Every second counts.

Unique Training Opportunity

The South Dakota Office of Homeland Security and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security are hosting a three hour workshop to enhance preparedness against active shooter incidents through:

  • Developing an Emergency Action Plan with guidance from expert instructors
  • Identifying strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in physical security and planning considerations
  • Learning how to prevent active shooter incidents by recognizing behavioral indicators on the pathway to violence
  • Understanding the history of significant active shooter incidents through survivor stories and expert perspectives

Enhancing Emergency Planning

The workshop will describe how to incorporate key elements of successful incident management into planning efforts, such as:

  • Developing communication and incident plans for employees
  • Building relationships with local first responders
  • Coordinating with first responders before, during, and after an incident
  • Integrating public affairs into incident management
