Access During Active Shooting and Hostile Events – Are You Prepared? A Look at Campus Access and What You Need to Know About NFPA 3000.



As evidenced by the recent shooting at Michigan State University, college campuses are not immune from active shooter incidents and other hostile events. Is your campus prepared and does law enforcement have the access they need during such incidents? These are just a couple of the topics to be discussed.

The webinar will feature Chief Otto Drozd, who guided the development of NFPA 3000, the Standard for Active Shooter/Hostile Event Response (ASHER) Program. As fire chief of the Orange County Fire Rescue Department, Otto witnessed first-hand the impacts of the 2016 Pulse night club shooting that killed 49 people and wounded 53 more, and realized the need for an integrated preparedness, response, and recovery program is greater than ever before. NFPA 3000 addresses all aspects of the process, from identifying hazards and assessing vulnerability to planning, resource management, incident management at a command level, competencies for first responders, and recovery.

Also hear from CCFS President Justin Daniels on how the University of Oklahoma prepares for ASHER events and how law enforcement access is ensured. Neal Zipser of Knox will discuss how schools and law enforcement are utilizing Knox products to help improve tactical response.

Otto has championed efforts that will have an enduring impact on fire and life safety. It was his initiative and insights that spurred the fast-tracked development of NFPA 3000™, Standard for an Active Shooter/Hostile Event Response (ASHER) Program. Drawing on his decades of public safety knowledge and his experience during and after the Pulse night club tragedy in Orlando, Otto requested that NFPA produce the world’s first standard to help communities holistically address mass casualty incident planning, resource management, incident command, and competencies.
