Active Shooter Training for Library Employees Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, April 3, 2019, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

Cases of workplace violence involving armed perpetrators at libraries are both rare and catastrophic. Not all subjects have used guns in these attacks; edged weapons are a concern as well. Recent attacks in Sacramento, CA; Framingham, MA; and Clovis, NM have heightened the awareness of the need for library employees to follow the national Department of Homeland Security (DHS) protocol: Run - Hide - Fight. Since all employees are in charge of their own sense of security, they need to know what to do, what not to do, and how to protect themselves and others during these life-changing events.

Dr. Albrecht uses empowerment over fear to make you feel comfortable about an uncomfortable subject like this one (e.g. no explicit videos or frightening stories). In this fast-paced and tool-based session, he covers these issues:

  • Defining potential workplace events and possible perpetrators
  • A brief history of active shooter events nationally and at libraries, and lessons learned
  • Recognizing pre-attack behavioral warning signs
  • When to use “high-risk customer service skills"
  • The value of staff viewing either the DHS Run - Hide - Fight six-minute video or the California State University Run-Hide-Fight video
  • Related responses and drills and understanding police response
  • How to practice and drill with Run-Hide safely and effectively

After participating in this workshop, you’ll be able to

  • Recognize pre-attack behavioral warning signs.
  • Know when to use “high-risk customer service skills.”
  • Understand the value of staff viewing either the DHS Run - Hide - Fight six-minute video or the California State University Run-Hide-Fight video.
  • Facilitate practices and drills with Run-Hide safely and effectively.
