Preparing EMS Agencies and Civilians to Respond to Active Shooter Events (abstract)
Regardless of how quickly a public safety agency can respond, there will always be a critical time period before arrival of trained professional assistance. We see this in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), where increased public access to AEDs and improved bystander response has been successful at raising OHCA. This same concept can be applied to active shooter events.
