Sheboygan, WI – It is a nightmare that we hear about all too often. An active shooter at an event or gathering. How to survive, or better yet, prevent this from happening?
Meeting professionals from across the state will get life-saving training at the Wisconsin Chapter of Meeting Professionals International’s annual Spring Education Day at the Blue Harbor Resort in Sheboygan, WI, on May 18-19, 2016.
Jason Weber, trainer for the National Criminal Justice Training Center, author, and expert on active shooters will discuss prevention techniques as well as what to do if the worst occurs.
MPI-WI President, Tom Graybill, stressed the importance of this training for everyone involved in the meetings industry. "Knowing what to do in an active shooter situation is unfortunately becoming crucial training for meeting professionals. With this session, MPI-Wisconsin is hoping to provide our members with instruction that can save lives, and we hope it is training that never has to be used."
