There are various resources that will be required to curb such a situation. This includes telephones, halls and policemen. The institutions should ensure that the students can access a telephone where they can call for help if such an incidence occurs. A common secure hall should be build where the students can seek refuge. Finally policemen should be at their disposal so that they can counter the active shooter.
Communication is very important in such a situation. This will make it easy to alert other people who might not be aware of the presence of the active shooter. The communication can be done through making calls silently to the administration or dialing 911 to report the emergency.
Incident Command Center (Emergency Operations Center)
The institution should ensure that they have a command center that is build purposely to deal with such incidences.it is in this center where the incident will be monitored and communication made in the case where the situation has been arrested and normalcy can resume.
