NFPA 3000, Standard for Preparedness and Response to Active Shooter and/or Hostile Events, is seeking public input on its preliminary draft. This preliminary draft allows the public to review and submit any suggested revisions prior to its publication.
NFPA 3000 provides the minimum criteria for the level of competence required for responders organizing, managing, and sustaining an active shooter and/or hostile event preparedness and response program based on the authority having jurisdiction’s (AHJ) function and assessed level of risk. The standard covers: a review of the laws; regulations; consensus standards; guidance documents; guidance for risk assessment; training materials; active shooter response planning; resource management; staffing, training, and financial management; medical treatment modalities; and information on resiliency, recovery, and developing relationships. NFPA 3000 applies to any community, AHJ, facility, and member of any organization who responds to or prepares for active shooter and/or hostile events.
