Training Description

An active shooter in the long-term setting is something no one wants to think about but preparation for this type of emergency is a must.  With the additional challenges for preparation and response in this environment, the Active Shooter Prevention and Response for Long-Term Care training will explore pre-incident prevention and preparation, during incident response and post incident planning and response specifically for long-term care settings. The training will provide tools and strategies from the individual employee and organizational levels.  The interactive training will include discussion of policy and procedure, situational awareness, communication of concerns, Run/Hide/Fight alone and with residents, working with law enforcement and preparedness requirements.  Engaging learning exercises and a multiple part tabletop exercise will provide opportunities to apply what they learn.

Training Objectives
After the training, participants will be able to:
  • Describe their role in prevention and active shooter response.
  • Describe actions to take when confronted with an active shooter.
  • Identify strategies for interacting with law enforcement who are responding to an active shooter.
  • Define how to manage the consequences of an active shooter event.


Who Should Attend

The training is designed to provide all* long-term care employees, regardless of role, knowledge and skills related to active shooter incidents.

To maximize the impact of the training and application in your organization, we recommend attending as a group of at least four.  This might include safety committee members, staff from various departments/roles/shifts and leadership.

All attendees will receive a personalized certificate of completion. Administrators, operators and nurses licensed in Kansas will receive CE credit.  Other disciplines and those licensed outside of Kansas will receive a verification of attendance for potential self-submission for CE credit. 

*Due to organization size and ownership, some may not qualify under the grant.  These individuals will be placed on a waitlist and offered training if training spaces for qualifying trainees remain unfilled.
