Your research lab or facility is not immune to gun violence. In fact, according to an FBI report, 70% of all active shooter incidents occur within business or educational settings – right where you’re located.
Obviously, you can’t stop random acts of violence, but being prepared and knowing how to respond to an active shooter or armed intruder event is the key to your survival. Especially when you consider that in nearly half of all active shooter incidents, police response may take up to 10 minutes.
Survival is no accident, and closing your eyes and hoping it never happens to you is NOT the answer. The way to ensure you’re prepared is to include an active shooter and armed intruder scenario guidelines to your Emergency Response Plan.
That’s where national safety, security, and risk management expert, Steve Wilder, BA, CHSP, STS, can help. For the last 32 years, Steve has helped research teams protect themselves. During his upcoming, 90-minute online training session on Wednesday, July 25th at 1pm ET, you’ll learn exactly how to improve your chances of survival should you ever end up in an active shooter or armed intruder situation.

In 2016 and 2017 the FBI designated 50 shootings in 21 states as active shooter incidents. During these events a massive 943 casualties were reported. In 8 of these Active Shooter events citizens confronted the shooter and safely and successfully acted to end the shooting, certainly saving many from being killed or wounded.
No one expects to be at work and have someone walk in and begin shooting, certainly those killed and wounded listed on the FBI website below didn’t. Your only hope is to be prepared.
- A former student shot and killed 32 people and wounded 17 at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
- Armed with a handgun, a woman opened fire at the University of Alabama killing 3 and wounding 3
- The boyfriend of an employee at EmCore (defense research lab) opened fire killing 2 and wounding 4
- 1 person was shot and killed and 2 were wounded when a gunman opened fire at Case Western University
- 1 person killed and 7 wounded when a man began shooting at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center
- A former employee opened fire with a rifle at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center (NY) by killing 1 and wounding 6
The commonality of these events…they all thought “it will never happen here”. But it did.
This online presentation was developed by a team of law enforcement/SWAT officers and healthcare security professionals. By attending, you’ll learn proven strategies to combat the unique challenges that accompany an active shooter or armed intruder coming into your research lab or facility.
These traumatic events are devastating to everyone involved: Improve your chances of survival should you end up in one. The best course of action is to hope for the best and plan for the worst. So, don’t wait, sign up for this one-of-a-kind research facility-specific emergency preparedness training today.
