Emergency response planning can be a challenging task for any business or corporation. Active shooter drills and response planning have become popular topics with recent stories in the news, and have forced companies to review their emergency response plans. You have been hired by a hospital located in Dallas Texas, to develop a brief active shooter response plan for their facility. This facility has four floors, and has a combination of 1200 employees and patients at any given time. This hospital only has 4 entrances and exits, and one loading doc area that is open to the general public. With this information, answer the following questions in a one to twopage paper: A. What are the potential and unforeseen threats for this type of facility? What is the difference between a manmade threat, and a natural or environmental threat? B. What type of security measures would you put into place to protect this facility? C. How would you train staff members on the importance of active shooter awareness? D. What type of evacuation measures would you use to get people out of this building if there was an active shooter? E. What would your incident command structure look like? Who would call 911, and how would you explain the concept of â Run, Hide, Fightâ to staff members? F. In conclusion, do you think hospitals and medical facilities are doing enough to protect patients, staff, and visitors from active shooter scenarios? Why/why not? This assignment must use proper sentence structure, spelling, and grammar, and must be submitted in the proper APA format. All assignments will be doublespaced, and in Times New Roman, 12pt font.
