The Active Shooter program addresses the importance of having an incident management plan for an active shooter or hostage situation at a critical infrastructure facility. During these one-day seminars all around the country, facility owners and operators will learn the critical components of a healthy response plan: communication with employees; employee accountability; familiarization with local emergency responders and the services they offer; coordination and communication with first responders; and public affairs.

CSS Vice President of Training James E. McGinty provides an in-depth history and analysis of active shooters with ample insight into tendencies and lessons learned. Following the seminar portion of the program, attendees participate in an Active Shooter Tabletop Exercise, administered by Covenant and the Nexight Group, LLC. The interactive exercise provides a window into the first critical moments of responding properly to an active shooter situation.
