Counter-Terrorism Expert to Prepare Real Estate Managers for Active Shooter Events

“Counter Terrorism Expert to Prepare Real Estate Managers for Active Shooter Events” 
Boston Real Estate Times  – Mar 8, 2019

Over 250 active shooter events occurred in the United States from 2000 – 2017, resulting in 2,217 casualties, both killed and wounded. Unfortunately, we live in a world where incidents like this can occur anywhere, and at any time. Statistics show that active shooter events most commonly occur in businesses (45%), schools (25%), and government facilities (10%). With the majority of these incidents occurring at work, it is critical that people are equipped with the most up-to-date active shooter preparedness strategies and training available. To address this issue, IREM (Institute of Real Estate Management) is holding a special, two-hour webinar event on April 17 that will help real estate managers and their staff address risks, prepare for potential violence and increase tenant and resident safety.
