The Emergency Management Division regularly hosts a variety of courses and trainings, that provide attendees with the skills, resources, and knowledge to adapt and respond to emergency situations.
The training and events calendar is updated regularly.
An Active Harmer/Shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area. More recently, the term was updated to “Active Harmer” because, while the individual’s intention is the same, the weapon used may not be a firearm (e.g., hatchet, knife, vehicle, etc.).
Active harmer situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the person levying the attack and mitigate harm to victims.

Natural, human-caused, and technological disasters can occur at any time. Having a plan and an emergency disaster kit will increase your ability to adapt and respond if ever faced with a disaster.
Whether circumstances dictate sheltering-in-place or evacuating, developing an emergency plan and an emergency disaster kit is an effective way to ensure you and those around you have the tools and resources in place and ready to go during an emergency.
