Tailboard Talk podcast

In this replay of an earlier episode of the “Tailboard Talk” podcast, your hosts discuss mass shootings and fire-EMS response. How should a fire department respond to active shooter scenarios? Do firefighters enter the warm zone or stage in a safe place and wait? What steps are needed to put a fire department in a position to respond to an active shooter incident? Are mass shootings a problem that is limited to “big cities”? Dane Carley, Craig Nelson, and Jeff Wallin discuss these questions based on best practices and the NFPA’s new provisional standard.
