2 Active Shooters according to DHS: An active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area. Active shooter incidents are usually unpredictable, last only 10 – 15 minutes and are carried out by a single attacker using multiple firearms. An overwhelming majority of shooters are male between the ages of 15 and 19 for school shootings, and 35 and 44 for incidents taking place at other types of facilities. Active shooters are often members of the community they target, although their selection of victims does not follow any specific pattern or method. Security is Everyone's Responsibility

3 Active Shooter Suspect’s activity is immediately causing death or serious bodily injury The activity is not contained There is immediate risk of death or serious injury to potential victims Security is Everyone's Responsibility

4 Dynamic Situation The situation is evolving very rapidly along with the suspect’s action Example: shooting and moving Static Situation The situation is not evolving or in motion Suspect’s actions appear to be contained Example: suspect is barricaded in a room Security is Everyone's Responsibility

5 Soft Target A person or location that is relatively unprotected or vulnerable, especially to a terrorist attack Time Line of Violence The period of time from the suspects first violent action until his action is stopped or transitions to another activity Incident Transition That point in the incident where the “active shooter” stops their violent actions and tries to escape or barricade themselves Security is Everyone's Responsibility

13 First Officers arriving will not stop to help injured Expect rescue teams comprised of additional officers and emergency medical personnel to follow the initial officers. These rescue teams will treat and remove any injured persons. They may also call upon able-bodied individuals to assist in removing the wounded from the premises. Once you have reached a safe location or an assembly point, you will likely be held in that area by law enforcement until the situation is under control, and all witnesses have been identified and questioned. Do not leave until law enforcement authorities have instructed you to do so. Security is Everyone's Responsibility
