Managing the Threat: Notification Time is Crucial During Active Shooter Emergencies
Colonel Owens will talk about empowering faculty & staff to have direct communication and reporting ability through mobile panic buttons to combat our nation’s #1 act of domestic terrorism, the active killer.
One of the biggest problems with active shooter situations everywhere is there is no single protocol for getting help, nor is there a universal help signal – like pulling the red lever in the event of a fire – and the “dial 911” notification process is costing lives. The number of active shooters in our schools is increasing at an alarming rate and the only true defense against this threat is to reduce law enforcement response time to these incidents.
Colonel Chris Owens from Lee County, GA will talk about empowering faculty & staff to have direct communication and reporting ability through mobile panic buttons to combat our nation’s #1 act of domestic terrorism, the active killer.
