Alexander Lipovtsev, LCSW                                    

  Assistant Director, Health Center Support.  Emergency Management System, Community Health Care Association of New York State

An active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and other populated area. In most cases, active shooters use firearms and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. All health center employees can help prevent and prepare for potential active shooter situations. This session will provide information and resources about recommended actions for all health center employees to take should they be confronted with an active shooter situation.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Examine potential workplace violence indicators.
  2. Develop actions to take to prevent and prepare for potential active shooter incidents.
  3. Determine actions to take when confronted with an active shooter situation and how to manage the consequences of an active shooter incident.
