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.
