This webinar will outline the steps to achieve this, from holding meetings and deciding on roles, responsibilities and procedures, to developing table-top exercises and small-scale training exercises, and eventually the transition to large-scale training exercises that involve realistic actors and responses. With these tools, cities and counties will be much better prepared should a school shooting ever occur in their district.
