What Everyone Needs To Know About NFPA 3000

As more hostile events continue to occur around the world, it is critical for first responders, emergency personnel, facility managers, hospital officials, community members, and others to have the information they need to be prepared when attacks occur. NFPA® is developing a new standard – NFPA 3000, Standard for Preparedness and Response to Active Shooter and/or Hostile Events – to address that need. The purpose of NFPA 3000 is to identify the minimum program elements necessary for organizing, managing, and sustaining an active shooter and/or hostile event response program and to reduce or eliminate the risks, effect, and impact on an organization or community affected by these events. The document addresses the following areas and others:

• Risk assessment                    
• Planning
• Resource management
• Organizational deployment
• Incident management
• Facility readiness
• Finance
• Communications
• Competencies for law enforcement
• Competencies for fire and EMS
• Personal protective equipment
• Training
• Community education
• Information sharing
• Readiness of receiving hospitals
• Recovery
