The Federal Emergency Management Agency recently released a new free online training program titled IS-360: Preparing for Mass Casualty Incidents: A Guide for Schools, Higher Education, and Houses of Worship. Part of the 2013 White House School Safety Initiative, the course focuses on mass casualty events such as active shooter situations. The course is offered to focus on three unique areas: K12 schools, Institutions of higher learning and places of worship. The courses were developed in response to the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School and other incidents.
Safe Havens personnel Michael Dorn, Steve Satterly, Chris Dorn, Dr. Sonayia Shepherd, Phuong Nguyen and Gregory Thomas helped write the content for this series of courses. The courses are designed for those who want to learn more about preventing, preparing for, responding and recovering from active shooter situations.
