Blue Line, Canadian Security and Fire Fighting in Canada joined forces on July 26, 2018, to host an exclusive and free webinar on first responders preparing together for active threats.

Presenters included:


• Const. Robert Daniel, the senior trainer for RCMP’s tactical training section
• Fire Chief Deryn Rizzi, Vaughan Fire and Rescue
• Deputy Fire Chief Andrew Zvanitajs, Vaughan Fire and Rescue

An active shooter is defined as an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area. The U.S. has experienced a number of devastating events, such as the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting and the Las Vegas tragedy in October 2017, which have received international attention.  

Canada has not escaped the threat: the recent van attack in Toronto,  the 2014 shooting of a reserve army corporal in Ottawa and the 2017 Quebec City mosque shooting are a couple examples of why efficient emergency response to these crisis situations is top of mind.

A lack of preparation can be the difference between life and death. For Canadian first responders, an integrated-rescue system has been one helpful way to prepare for mass-casualty incidents.

Watch this unique webinar in the link above and hear from active shooter experts in the fire and police worlds about emergency services communication/planning, best practices, as well as more on stabilizing the scene.

SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS: Armor Express and Teijin.
