Our hearts go out to everyone at Ohio State this morning. Keep students, faculty, administration and staff in your prayers. These incidents always make us think of how to better prepare and protect our own environments. Even as a company who helps with Crisis Planning, Violence in the Workplace Prevention, and Active Shooter preparation, we are still shocked and saddened by these events.
In times of crisis, we don’t rise to the occasion, but fall back on our training. Ohio State’s tweet to “Run, Hide, Fight” was a reminder to students and faculty of their training. As media stories continue to come in, more examples of properly trained staff and students come to light.
Today’s events is another tragic reminder that every school, business, and institution needs to be prepared for a crisis. To schedule an Active Shooter Prevention seminar, contact us.
