HEART Trust/NTA hosts, through its Safety and Security Unit, An Active Shooter Forum on Thursday, September 29, 2016 at the Knutsford Court Hotel 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This Forum is in response to events occurring around the world and in particular the United States an area where a large portion of the Jamaican Diaspora resides. HEART Trust, being a proactive organization, has sought to bring to the fore, discussion among stakeholders on the impact of an active shooter, individual’s responsiveness and the involvement of our security officials.
This Forum is an extension of the Disaster Simulation Exercise held at Garmex Academy in November 2015. The Exercise then was to evaluate the Academy’s readiness in managing an active shooter on the property and also to test the responsiveness of the State emergency response systems. The Active Shooter Forum will therefore bring relevant experts together to share their ideas and experiences in an effort bring about new policies and direct policy changes where necessary and also to help persons to cope should they experience such a situation.
