Description

***As of 12/14/17, we have run out of seats for this event! We will be posting a recording of the event online the following day. We are considering hosting this same program shortly after the new year. Thank you for your interest!***

On Wednesday, December 20, 2017 at 6:30pm, the Plano Police Department will be hosting Active Shooter Preparedness training open to the public at the Plano Event Center at 2000 East Spring Creek Parkway, Plano, Texas 75074. The event is expected to last approximately two hours.

Active shooter incidents cannot be predicted but they can be prepared for. The City of Plano has trained its police, fire, dispatch, and other emergency personnel how to respond effectively to active shooter incidents. Utilizing material from the ALERRT Center at Texas State University (http://www.avoiddenydefend.org/) and the US Department of Homeland Security (https://www.dhs.gov/active-shooter-preparedness), we will be empowering the public to respond to and survive an active shooter incident. Participants will receive instruction on what to do should they ever find themselves in an active shooter incident and how to utilize the “Avoid, Deny, Defend” and “Run, Hide, Fight” strategies. Training and educating the public on active shooter response is a critical component of preparing the entire community and reducing the loss of life when an active shooter attacks.

This is a free event open to the public. Anyone plannning to attend is asked to register through Eventbrite.
