Consider an Active Shooter Drill

Canton, OH  (PRBuzz.com) November 19, 2012 -- According to security consultant John M. White, CPP, CHPA, businesses should consider holding an Active Shooter Drill in cooperation with their local law enforcement agencies.

"Businesses have what law enforcement needs and that is a real life facility or property to hold a drill at," says White. He goes on to say that, "Often times the police are looking for a place to drill at because conducting a drill is essential to maintaining readiness." In most cases law enforcement uses their own facility, but have not often drilled in places such as a medical center, factory, retail store, or other similar places. "If businesses were to offer the use of their facility, or a vacant building that the business has, law enforcement, fire, and EMS will normally jump all over that offer," says White. "The same is true for the local bomb squad, they too are usually looking for a place to test their equipment in a real life situation," said White. White said that businesses can work with the police and set ground rules, and the police will not use live ammunition nor will they damage anything.

Security Expert John M. White CPP, CHPA of Protection Management, LLC, says that businesses should take a look at their facilities and then reach out to their law enforcement community to determine if there is a need for a training place. "I think what businesses will find when they talk to the right person, is that the police will accept the offer with gratitude," according to White.
