Active shooter drill
Recently, employees from SAMC external clinics met with Dillon Ward, training supervisor, SAMC Security Services, to learn about active shooters and the steps to take if an active shooter entered at their facility. An active shooter is an individual engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area, typically through the use of firearms. Ward informed the class about actions to take when confronted with an active shooter and how to assist responding law enforcement officials. The employees were also taught how to recognize potential workplace violence indicators. After the simulation, participants held a critique and received training in how to effectively disable a shooter.
