Psychological, social and economic damage done by a shooting incident can continue to impact individuals, families, organizations and communities for decades after the incident. However, much less attention has been given to understanding and proactively planning to manage the post-incident consequences of an active shooter attack.
In this white paper from Everbridge, Active Shooter Incident Consequence Management and the Road to Recovery, Steven M. Crimando outlines the critical challenges and action steps associated with post-shooting environments that leaders and decision-makers must understand to better map out the road to recovery. Crimando covers the four stages of recovery:
- Immediate Response/Pre-Recovery Phase
- Early Recovery Phase
- Mid-Recovery Phase
- Long-Term Recovery Phase
