Active Shooter/Stop the Bleed Workshop

Active Shooter/Stop the Bleed Workshop

March 19, 2020, 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Sands 304

Active Shooter Workshop: Under today’s threat environment active shootings have unfortunately maintained a very deadly and real threat for businesses and communities. Regardless of the business model or size, employees and guests have fallen victim to these vicious attacks that occur without warning or impunity. This hands-on workshop focuses on how a business and its employees are not silent observers in deadly emergencies, but a valuable partner who can provide clarity, assistance and guidance to the first responder community. While we are an information society that thrives on timely and actionable communications when facing barbaric acts, this session helps you discover the communications platform and infrastructure to determine the plan on who should dispatch these messages.

Stop the Bleed Workshop: Motivated by the 2012 tragedy in Sandy Hook and multiple tragedies that have occurred in the ensuring years, what has become known as the Harford Consensus was convened to bring together leaders from law enforcement, the federal government, and the medical community to improve survivability from manmade or natural mass casualty events. The resulting injuries from these events generally present with severe bleeding which, if left attended, can result in death. The participants of the Hartford Consensus concluded that by providing first responders (law enforcement) and civilian bystanders the skills and basic tools to stop uncontrolled bleeding in an emergency situation, lives would be saved. The first responder program has received very good response and is widely being used across the country. The next step is to focus on needs of civilian bystanders.

Civilians need basic training in Bleeding Control principles so they are able to provide immediate, frontline aid until first responders are able to take care of an injured person. Due to many situations, there may be a delay between the time of injury and the time a first responder is on the scene. Without civilian intervention in these circumstances, preventable deaths will occur. The American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma is leading the effort to save lives by teaching the civilian population to provide vital response to stop uncontrolled bleeding in emergency situations.

Learning Objectives:
1. Gain clarity on the business and employee response, while also considering the duty of care responsibility which may hold the company liable for inaction, indecisiveness or inadequate training.
2. Determine how the method of run, hide and fight approach works under various business models and which liability exposures need to be addressed immediately in most organizations.
3. Provide vital initial response to stop uncontrollable bleeding in emergency situations.
