Unique Considerations in Retail Locations

Retail locations face unique challenges in active shooter situations due to their open layouts, high customer traffic, and limited security measures. These factors could make it difficult to control the situation quickly, increasing the potential for harm to customers, employees, and bystanders. Additionally, retail staff may not be trained or equipped to handle such emergencies, leading to confusion and panic. Our specialized training can help retail locations implement strategies and empower employees with the knowledge to protect themselves and others in the event of an active shooter.
