NFPA 3000 (PS) -A New Standard for Active Shooter/Hostile Event Response
This session will focus on the application, implementation and use of NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) 3000, a voluntary standard addressing all aspects of active shooter/assailant response scenarios. New in 2018, the scope of NFPA 3000 is to provide the minimum criteria communities need to prepare for, organize, manage, and sustain preparedness and response programs based on local jurisdictions and risk levels. This covers all stakeholders in the emergency response community, including law enforcement, schools and school administrators, fire and EMS, healthcare and the community.
