Practical Response to Active Shooter & Bomb Threats

The Critical Incident Management (CIM) Program was initiated in 2001.  The Program has continued to modify and improve to set precedence in crisis response as a national standard.  The effective interface of staff, support staff, administrations, and first responders creates a unified response to minimize the impact on our schools, businesses, and government units.  All personnel receive training on their specific roles but also receive training in the roles of the other counterparts to understand the overall objectives each entity provides.  Training includes:

Staff Training Response to Active Shooters, Bomb Threats and Hazardous Materials Incidents

Incident Command - Who are the Overseers and what are their responsibilities

Administrative Responsibilities for Supervisors to Critical Incidents

Bomb Threat Administrative Actions

Table Top Exercises:  Scenario based training

 Staff are our first line of defenders for students, patrons, and clients.  Each is trained in responses to school/ business/ government violence, securing against threats, bomb threats, shelter in place for hazardous materials and hostage survival.  Administrators are trained in the oversight of employees for support and resource management.  Read here what previous training attendees have to say about CIM training:
