Avon Protectionx100

Responding to and Preparing for Acts of Violence
Free to attend.
Approximately one hour.
Steven Hamilton, Lieutenant, Fort Jackson (SC) Fire Department

Every fire department, EMS agency, and law enforcement division must deal with emergency scenes that contain violence. Instances of violence are not prejudiced to location, population, demographics, or economic status. It is essential for every agency to educate personnel on the dangers of violent scenes and provide them with the knowledge to recognize and manage threats.  The instructor will define a scene of violence; highlight procedures for responding to scenes; identify types of scenes that are or could become violent; describe safety measures while en route, approaching, and working within a scene; and discuss multiple-agency response to scenes and unified command concepts as well as personal protective equipment. Participants will leave this webcast with a heightened state of safety and awareness regarding acts of violence.
