Workshop

Active Shooter

Guest Speaker

Special Agent Joseph F. Metzinger, FBI Philadelphia Division, Domestic Terrorism/Joint Terrorism Task Force

This is an AWARENESS program. By its connotation, an Active Shooter/Active Threat/Hostile Event scenario dictates that the immediate actions of individuals being targeted and those of public safety and first responders will directly affect the outcome of the event. This program is designed to make recipients THINK. It drives home the necessity for recipients to not only be aware of and understand emergency protocols, but also be aware of current domestic and international events that could impact our institutions. The program is also designed to help recipients understand, detect, and prevent acts of targeted violence, and to recognize and disrupt potential actors who may be on a trajectory toward violence. The program also supports emergency management, preparedness, mitigation, and response protocols facilities and institutions may have in place. Additionally, FBI resources are increasingly offered and deployed to assist local and state police and public safety agencies during Active Shooter/Active Threat/Hostile Event scenarios or post incident. This program presents the challenges public safety personnel and civilians are faced with in preventing these events from occurring and mitigating the consequences

1:45 pm - 3:45 pm
