Want to know how you can help prevent active shooter or work/school place violence? Attached is a great article about several mass killings that have taken place in the U.S. and how in every instance they were many warning signs that fell on deaf ears. In most cases these events are even broadcast ahead of time via social media. We all fail to listen to those that display the signs. It is easy to write off behaviors as exaggerations or “active imaginations.”
By reporting and intervening early, individuals capable of these actions could be thwarted. We at Invictus Consulting have been advising on paying close attention to certain behaviors or actions as part of your Emergency Planning. A proper plan is proactive, not just a step by step of what to do after the event happens.
As Risk Management Consultants and Active Shooter Experts, we would have loved to have written this article ourselves. We are also smart enough to know to give credit where it is due: The following piece by Mark Manson perfectly articulate in trying to get you to change your understanding of these incidents. Perhaps that will help prevent others.
