NFPA Hosts Free Public Session on Active Shooter Response




Tuesday, June 18 | 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Henry B. González Convention Center | San Antonio TX



ExpoPlus™ included in registration


Learn how to work effectively with local authorities to better plan for, respond to, and recover from mass casualty events during a free Public Session on Active Shooter / Hostile Event Response hosted by the National Fire Protection Association®.


Emergency managers, policymakers, fire, police, EMS, school officials, and facility managers who are charged with protecting people and property will find great value in this program.


Listen to personal remarks from Michele Gay, co-founder of Safe and Sound Schools, who lost her daughter in the 2012 Sandy Hook School shooting in Connecticut.


Learn about NFPA 3000™ (PS), Standard for an Active Shooter/Hostile Event Response (ASHER) Program—the world’s first framework that helps different authorities integrate, organize, manage, communicate, and sustain a hostile event strategy.


Hear from the influencers who helped develop NFPA 3000™ (PS). In addition to the professional roles noted above, the NFPA 3000™ (PS) Technical Committee also included representatives from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the U.S. Department of Justice. Technical Committee members provide insights from tragic events at the Mandalay Bay Resort, Pulse Nightclub, Sandy Hook Elementary School, the Sikh Temple, and the Boston Marathon during the development of NFPA 3000™ (PS).


Attend two educational sessions that are part of the NFPA Conference & Expo® at the convention center:

2:30–3:30 p.m.


NFPA 3000™ (PS): Community Threat Assessment and Response Preparedness

3:45–4:45 p.m.

Henry B. González Convention Center | San Antonio TX

$250 REGISTER at


Register today for one of 70 spots reserved for individuals who want a more in-depth, hands-on understanding of NFPA 3000™ (PS) recommendations and requirements. Participants in the Interactive Active Shooter/Hostile Event Risk Assessment and Planning Seminar will learn how to:

  • Establish high-level coordination and interoperability.
  • Determine who should be at the ASHER planning table and what their roles should be.
  • Address recovery—often the longest-lasting and most complicated phase of any incident.

Space is limited for this exclusive, hands-on session.

"Safety is something we all say we want—but when it comes down to the realities of what it takes to keep people safe, we often turn away because it’s uncomfortable, expensive, or may cause us to get into arguments. We need community leaders to work together, and our policy makers to champion, endorse, and support collaboration." — Michele Gay, co-founder of Safe and Sound Schools
