Active Shooter Guidance

There are unique considerations when planning for an active shooter event in a hospital. See below for active shooter guidance from the Department of Homeland Security, FEMA, the FBI, and more. 

HASC developed the Security and Safety Active Shooter Drill Tool Kit to create greater awareness of workplace violence among hospitals and other health care facilities, and to provide the tools necessary for each facility to develop a plan that leads to a safer, more prepared environment. Based on an active shooter drill held at LAC + USC Medical Center in March 2013, the materials feature templates, checklists, industry guidelines, scenarios, safety rules, participant releases and staffing suggestions for planning a similar event. This video also provides a firsthand account of the HASC drill with scenes from the simulated attack in clinical and office settings.
