Active Shooter (Active Risk)

Preparedness is essential in high-risk situations, which is why many governments and their institutions have implemented active risk measures. Active Shooter (or Active Risk) is an extremely serious risk for organizations, secondary education, public facilities, and special events. Mass homicide, casualties, rapidity, scale, randomness, and often suicide are hallmarks of this risk. Locations are generally described as soft targets as they carry limited security measures to protect staff or members of the public.

Active shooters do not negotiate; instead, they injure or kill as many people as possible, often to gain notoriety. Although the likelihood is minimal, particularly in Canada, the consequences are catastrophic.
