Is AlerT a Best Practice?
Yes. AlerT is an active shooter defense program that clearly meets standard of care established by all leading federal response agencies, such as FEMA, U.S. Homeland Security, U.S. Department of Education, U.S. Department of Health, as well as OSHA’s General Duty Clause.
What is the Standard of Care?
Standard of Care is a legal term that outlines the level of caution needed to meet this duty to protect.
In order to meet the Standard of Care, organizations must implement emergency operations planning and training that prepares staff to respond to an active-shooter type attack with options beyond a basic lockdown standard response protocol.
How AlerT Meets the Standard of Care
AlerT enhances existing lockdown plans while integrating them into a standardized, all-hazards, best-practice response framework – incorporating the following elements:
- Part of an All-Hazards Framework
- Addresses the need to run from or evade the attacker
- Enhances lockdown concepts with impromptu classroom hardening
- Trains staff to decide which option is the best option
- Allows for deviation from standard response protocols
- Trains staff to overcome panic
- Prepares adults (not students) to resist as a last resort
AlerT is the only system that meets all of these requirements.
