Everbridge and Emergency Management and Safety (EMS) Solutions recently conducted a survey around active shooter preparedness and found organizations are overwhelmingly concerned about violent acts – such as active shooter situations – taking place in their buildings or on campus. Despite this concern, the majority of respondents said they were not properly prepared for an active shooter event. Key findings include:

  • 69 percent of organizations view an active shooter incident as a potential top threat, but 79 percent replied that their organizations were not fully prepared.
  • Communicating with and confirming the safety of those in an impacted building were seen as the biggest challenges during an active shooter situation by 71 percent of organizations, yet 39 percent still said they didn’t have a communications plan in place.

  • 61 percent of organizations do not run any active shooter preparedness drills at all.
