Responding to Active Shooter and the Supervisor

Tuesday Mar 31, 2015 - 01:00pm to 02:00pm EDT
Event Description: 

The supervisor's role is critical during an active threat. He/She is not only responsible for everyone's safety, but also for setting up a command center, coordinating with EMS, and the Fire Units that arrive on scene. Further, the supervisor has to make decisions such as sending in more contact teams or rescue teams. This webinar will provide attendees with an overview of how first responders can be trained so that the supervisor will know what the first responders under their command will be doing.
