Emergency Management

 

 

According to news reports, more than 88 mass casualty events, a distinct category of shootings taking place in a public setting, have taken place in the last 30 years, or roughly 1 every 4 months.  However, statistics show the rate of mass casualty shootings is increasing, meaning that, unfortunately, first responders will likely come across one this type of event in the near future — and potentially many times throughout their careers. 

The Justice Clearinghouse covers the topic of Mass Casualty and Emergency Management on a regular basis: through the webinars we hold, the articles we write, as well as the articles we curate from other respected sources. 

Begin or enhance your knowledge about how to respond to, prepare for, and recover from Mass Casualty and other major Emergency events by reviewing some of the information below.
