We all know what happened in Uvalde, Texas, on May 24th. But did you know there have been 33 more mass shootings since the tragedy at Robb Elementary School?
According to the FBI, the number of mass shootings in 2021 was 52% higher than in 2020 and about double each of the three previous years. So, it’s no wonder schools, businesses, and other organizations are taking steps to provide their staff with the knowledge and skills needed to handle violent situations.
The rise in mass shootings across the country has led to the creation of active shooter training seminars. These readiness programs provide valuable tools. Simulation exercises, instructional videos, evaluation of vulnerabilities, and education about safe places to shelter all help get employees better prepared for worst-case scenarios.
While no one wants to consider the possibility of defending themselves or others during a violent or hostile situation, it’s always better to be prepared. At SFM Services, we take our responsibility to our community and our clients very seriously. That’s why we’ve developed an active shooter training seminar that helps people enhance their awareness, preparedness, and readiness. Reach out today to increase safety and security in your organization.
