Police, Fire/EMS- Mass Casualty Response to Active Shooters

"It's time to consider a different approach by first responders."

Hours: 4
Tuition: $75.00

As a Webinar $149.00 per agency call for information.

Program Information:
Defining moments have occurred in the history of the Police and Fire service that have necessitated a critical
review of mass casualty response in the interest of saving lives. In 1999 it was Columbine and in 2012 it was the SIKH Temple shooting in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

Every tactical incident that creates mass casualties has two time sensitive tasks that pit emergency responders against the clock. Through self evaluation the Oak Creek Police and Fire Departments have developed a new response/paradigm that will change the way Emergency Medical Services (EMS) are introduced at critical incidents, i.e. active shooters, bombings etc. It is through these changes EMS will achieve its mission and be able to safely treat those in need of critical care, thereby saving lives.

City of Oak Creek, WI Police Captain Mike Bolender and Fire Battalion Chief Joe Pulvermacher will provide a 4-hour seminar detailing this concept to an In-studio audience of police and fire personnel. Participating agencies will receive sample protocols/procedures that can be adjusted to your agency, city, or region’s unique needs. This National program is also be available to departments as a webinar that can be purchased through
