With the recent shootings at the Excel Industries, Hesston, Kansas facility so soon after the December 2015 incident at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, companies are justifiably concerned about this growing threat.
Fair Lawn, New Jersey (PRWEB) March 16, 2016
The law firm of Norris, McLaughlin & Marcus, P.A. will hold a seminar at their Bridgewater, New Jersey offices on March 30, 2016 that will feature Barry Brandman, President/CEO of Danbee Investigations, as one of the speakers. His presentation will explain how companies can best prevent and respond to these types of incidents.
More than half of shooter incidents in the United Sates occur in a commercial, business or education environment. According to an FBI study of Active Shooter Incidents between 2003 – 2013, there were 1,043 casualties with 486 of these resulting in fatalities.
“Workplace violence, especially when lethal weapons are involved, is becoming all too commonplace. With the recent shootings at the Excel Industries, Hesston, Kansas facility so soon after the December 2015 incident at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, companies are justifiably concerned about this growing threat,” explains Barry Brandman.
The speakers at this seminar include Norris, McLaughlin & Marcus, P.A. attorneys David E. Cassidy and Keya C. Denner, as well as Brandman and Jack DeLorenzo from Danbee Investigations.
“Jack and I will be explaining how companies can reduce their risk by being strategically proactive, recognizing the characteristics of a current or former employee who may be a potential active shooter threat, how to respond should you find yourself in an active shooter situation, as well as how to properly interact with law enforcement when they arrive,” explains Barry Brandman. “More than half of these workplace attacks are over prior to uniformed police or SWAT teams responding, so it’s imperative to know what to do. Having this knowledge can literally mean the difference between life or death.”
