Consider citizens while implementing new NFPA standard
The proposed NFPA 3000 standard provides a framework to help shape the emergency response models of communities across the United States
The National Fire Protection Association is fast tracking a new standard for preparedness and response to active shooter events.
NFPA processed NFPA 3000, Standard for Preparedness and Response to Active Shooter and/or Hostile Events as a provisional standard – just the second time in over a century the council has authorized this type of process.
I applaud this effort by the NFPA, as these events are becoming far too frequent and more deadly with each passing year.
I think all emergency service providers understand that to be effective in these incidents, we have to work together. This proposed standard will provide a framework to help shape the response models of communities across the United States (and drag, kicking and screaming, those communities that have had their collective heads in the sand on this issue into preparation mode).
