Summary: NFPA 3000, 'Standard for an Active Shooter/Hostile Event Response (ASHER) Program' is the Provisional Standard issued to guide policy makers, first responders, and facility managers in being prepared for when an attack occurs. In this presentation Technical Committee member Tom Parrish will present an overview highlighting the scope and purpose of the standard. This includes a discussion about bringing together key stakeholders to develop and implement a program that reduces the risk and impact of these events and why the standard does not attempt to prescribe specific strategies or tactics that are best determined by facility managers and first responders. Participants will review the NFPA 3000 framework for program development which includes the three major phases of an event; Planning, Responding and Recovering.
