Willis Towers Watson introduces active shooter readiness program
Global advisory, broking and solutions company Willis Towers Watson on Monday introduced a free active shooter/armed intruder readiness program for senior living communities.
“An active shooter event is something that no one wants to imagine happening in a senior living community, but the reality is that all places where people congregate, including senior living communities, are vulnerable,” John Atkinson, managing partner of Willis Towers Watson's senior living practice, said in a statement. “This vulnerability calls for an increased need for preparedness,” he added.
The program is designed to help senior living communities plan for, respond to and recover from active shooter events. Organizations can access the material online and customize it for their own use. The materials:
- A training video reviewing critical action steps
- A sample policy and procedure related to active shooters/armed intruders
- A company and community readiness plan and checklist
- A webinar for active shooter awareness in a senior living community
The program was created in partnership with Sorensen, Wilder and Associates.
