As you know, Emergency Notification technology is a key component within your toolset for responding to public safety emergencies. Many emergency managers adopt a three-phased approach for managing public safety emergencies (prepare, respond, recover)
This training provides best practices and emphasizes the need to adopt a holistic perspective toward your emergency notification program.
In this webinar, we examine a frightening scenario - an active shooter incident. It goes without saying that active shooter events are occurring at an alarming rate, putting us all on guard as we endeavor to protect our communities and workplaces.
To help us be as prepared as possible, we will examine best practices for active shooter preparedness and how your organization can put them into practice. Chris Hunsinger, Senior Telecommunications Technician at PinnacleHealth System in Harrisburg, PA is our guest speaker and will share the processes his team has put in place to address the best practices.
We look forward to having you with us as we learn and share critical information and smarter ways to keep all our communities safe. There is something here for everyone.
