The Active Shooter Incident Management (ASIM) course provides a model framework to improve incident management and the integration of law enforcement, fire and EMS responders during active shooter event response, improving time to threat neutralization, medical intervention, and survivability of victims. This is an integrated response course for a cross-discipline audience of 25 law enforcement, 20 fire/EMS, and 5 telecommunicator (dispatcher) participants of mixed rank (i.e. line through supervisors and leadership). The framework utilizes the Active Shooter Incident Management ChecklistT, a validated active shooter event response checklist, integrating best practices guided by principles of the National Incident Management System (NIMS), Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC), and Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response (ALERRT). Participants will learn organizational building blocks for an integrated response including Contact Team, Rescue Task Force, Tactical, Perimeter, Triage, Transport, Intelligence, and Reunification through progressively challenging full-length Active Shooter Event functional exercise scenarios and hands-on experience in multiple response roles. The course also introduces participants to Complex Coordinated Attacks (CCA).
1. Describe the profile of a typical Active Shooter Event and practice the model response process using the Active Shooter Incident Management ChecklistT.
2. Apply key leadership roles and functions within an Active Shooter Event (ASE) response.
3. Demonstrate response and management of Basic Complexity and Moderate Complexity Active Shooter Events in simulation-based practical exercises.
4. Demonstrate response and management of Complex Coordinated Attacks (CCA) in simulation-based practical exercises.
