A pre-planned, integrated response by all first responder disciplines is critical to maximize effectiveness and improve the survivability of those injured in active shooter, IED and complex attacks. As many communities have already established integrated response programs there's no reason for any jurisdiction to reinvent the wheel. While there's no one-size fits all solution to the challenge of integrated response, there are already model communities of different sizes and compositions.
