Fire Smarts, in partnership with Telgian, is providing a series of informative training webinars taught by Telgian fire protection experts who will educate attendees on specific areas of fire protection systems, life safety and security issues. The November webinar, NFPA 3000 Active Shooter Response Program will be held on Thursday, November 14, 2019 from 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm Eastern (including 30 minutes of Q&A time).
Why is this NFPA 3000 Active Shooter Response Program Webinar a must-attend event?
NFPA 3000 Standard for an Active Shooter/Hostile Event Response (ASHER) Program is the Provisional Standard issued to guide policy makers, first responders, and facility managers for preparation in the event of an attack.
In this presentation, Technical Committee member Tom Parrish will present an overview highlighting the scope and purpose of the standard. This webinar includes a discussion about bringing together key stakeholders in order to develop and implement a program that reduces the risk and impact of these events, as well as why the standard does not attempt to prescribe specific strategies or tactics that are best determined by facility managers and first responders.
NFPA 3000 Standard for an Active Shooter/Hostile Event Response (ASHER) Program was developed by experts from a wide range of specialties and sets forth requirements for communities to establish unified planning, long before an active shooter/hostile event occurs. This cohesiveness reduces confusion and makes better use of resources, helping to save precious time and precious lives. Webinar participants will review the NFPA 3000 framework for program development, which includes all three major phases of an event:
