Part of the DCG School Safety Webinar Training Series

On December 14th, 2012 twenty 1st graders and six staff members at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT were tragically killed during an Active Shooter event.  Since then, Active Shooter events continue to rise and so do victim body counts, as shooters learn from each event. Tactical training for 1st Responders has increased and numerous states now require the annual practice of school emergency response plans. Unfortunately, there often remains a significant time gap before law enforcement arrives to locate and stop the threat. These valuable seconds must be minimized and it is critical to identify how to Shave Seconds to Save Lives!©

Good intentions and increased effort are not enough for Active Shooter preparedness. Dan will share his case study analysis of active shooter events that have identified how some law enforcement response habits contradict critical actions most needed to stop the threat. Some believe that practice makes perfect…but only perfect practice makes perfect.  

Presentation Discussion Points Will Include:


  1. What actually happened at Sandy Hook?
  2. Vital Trends concerning recent Active Shooter events.
  3. How to Shave Seconds to Save Lives!©
  4. Scriptwriting: Active Shooter Dispatch – Initial Scripts.
  5. First Priorities for first 1st Responders.
  6. School Emergency Response Planning.
