Even if your workplace or campus has a well-developed program of misconduct mitigation, you can still find yourself in the midst of an active shooting at work, on campus, at the mall, at the movies, or elsewhere. This training offers guidance on what to do in each of the four kinds of active shooter scenarios you could encounter.
Armed Attacks arise from the ranks of employees, their domestic partners, former employees, students, customers, and visitors. Organizations can take steps to prevent the escalation of misconduct from the early stages (e.g., incivility, insubordination, bullying, harassment, or mobbing) to the late stages (e.g., threats, violence, or gunfire). To learn more about how TAG can help your organization achieve this, explore TAG's E-Learning and Live training.
Armed Attack Training Lessons:
- Preparing for an Armed Attack:
This lesson is designed for interdisciplinary teams that manage violence risk. It covers how to prepare your organization for an armed attack and shows the audience whichever version of TAG’s Responding to an Armed Attack training the organization has decided to roll out to employees. The lesson takes 45-60 minutes during in-person or Webinar training of interdisciplinary teams and other specialists responsible for managing violence risk.
For organizations that have already adopted TAG’s Emergency Action Plan for an Armed Attack in the Workplace, there is no need for this lesson.
A 21-minute video of the major content of this lesson is included in TAG360 as annual refresher material or for new team members who missed the more complete in-person or webinar training.
- Responding to an Armed Attack:
This lesson provides specific guidance on available options for an armed attack in an open area, outside your building, inside your building, and in the same room. It teaches general guidelines for all incidents and what to expect from law enforcement.
TAG recommends that clients make TAG’s 10-minute e-learning lesson available on an optional basis to all managers, supervisors, and employees.
The same lesson can also be taught through 20-30 minute facilitated lessons held in break room or seminar sessions during which your facilitator uses TAG’s talking points and shows TAG’s video. Alternatively, the lesson can be delivered in 30-minute webinars taught by TAG Experts, though the degree of interaction possible depends on the size of the audience.
TAG Emergency Action Plan for an Armed Attack in the Workplace
TAG’s Emergency Action Plan is a 7-page template to be completed by the client—with or without TAG’s guidance and assistance—for each facility. The plan identifies the information that must be assembled in advance by each facility to prepare for an armed attack and delineates 55 steps to be taken and the sequence in which they should be taken. These action items cover the immediate period, from the first report until the threat of violence has ended, the first 24 hours, the first 7 days, at
