NSA and CNA Introduce new toolkit to help plan for an active shooter incident on military installations

CNA and the National Sheriffs' Association have introduced a new toolkit that provides a step-by-step plan for exercising an active shooter incident on a military installation. The Active Shooter Exercise Kit provides instructions for law enforcement agencies on how to plan, conduct and evaluate an exercise to highlight areas for improvement in preparedness for responding to an active shooter incident on U.S. military installations.

"We saw a gap in training that helps prepare our colleagues during active shooter situations," said Tom Greene County (Texas) Sheriff J. Nick Hanna. “This toolkit places our tabletop exercises under a microscope and forces emergency responders to improve weak communication and collaboration practices.”
