Last fall the Massachusetts Cultural Council held a session about Emergency Preparedness for the arts. While it is very difficult to have to think about how to prepare for the worst case scenario, we wanted to point you to some resources that may be helpful as you think about how to handle situations.
The Department of Homeland Security has several resources on their website, including an Active Shooter Preparedness resource page that has fact sheets, videos, and other resources. Here's a link to one of the videos.
DHS has created a document called the Planning and Response to an Active Shooter: An Interagency Security Committee Policy and Best Practices Guide.
The Just In Time Disaster Training Library was created "to provide a single, easy to search source in which individuals, agencies and organizations can access informative disaster mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery training videos."
We will continue to add resources to this page.
