Active shooter events are becoming more and more common. Schools, hospitals, office settings… these are all vulnerable locations where active shooter attacks have been carried out in the past, and which will be targeted in the future. Whether perpetrated by criminals to avenge a perceived slight, the mentally ill or by terrorists it is clear that the active shooter is a threat organizations must be prepared to respond to. Careful planning and expert training are key to reducing the impact of these traumatic events.

It looked as if a night of dark intent
Was coming, and not only a night, an age.
Someone had better be prepared for rage.
