Active Shooter Toolkit

The Active Shooter Toolkit is an IAFC members-only compendium of resources and information from a wide variety of organizations to help local departments prepare, respond and recover from active shooter and associated incidents. 

The toolkit was developed and the resources vetted by the IAFC Terrorism and Homeland Security Committee. All resources and references provided are for member consideration without qualification or recommendation.

The Terrorism Committee continues to search for new resources including articles, procedures, policies and reference links. If you have a tool to share, please forward it to Chief Tim Littlefield for consideration by the committee.
