Active shooter incidents are on the rise. According to FBI data, the U.S. saw nearly six times as many active shooter incidents between 2014 and 2015 compared to 2000 and 2001.
No environment is completely safe. While shootings in schools, nightclubs, churches and concerts capture many new headlines, more than 80 percent of active shooter incidents occur in the workplace, according to FBI data.
When it comes to active shooter response, there is no “one size fits all.” Active shooter responses will vary, dependent upon the situation, the environment, and other factors.
