Session 09: Active Shooter Situations – What Facility Managers Need to Know
Date & Time
Thursday, March 21, 2024, 8:40 AM - 9:40 AM

When you hear about active shooter situations in the news, do you wonder “Is my facility prepared?” This presentation, by the Modesto Police Department, will provide information you and your facilities staff members need to know. The speaker will describe what type of location shooters are looking for (soft compared to hard in respect to accessibility) – to “harden” your facility means to set things up to limit accessibility, like locked doors, a card system to get in, fences and locked gates, cement planters on a walkway to the front door to limit ability to drive a car through. Find out details about the mindset of shooters, learn signs to look for. Discussed will be the “Run, Hide, Fight” scenario during an active shooter situation. Also discussed will be the Department’s assessments provided upon request for Modesto facilities.
