Preparing for Workplace Violence & Active Shooter Webinar

What would happen if a gunman entered your office? Do you have an organized plan in place to respond to an active shooter? Would your business be able to recover? Companies of all sizes must understand the imminent threats to their organization plus have emergency preparedness plans to protect their most important assets: their employees.


Bill Hildebrand will host the webinar on workplace violence & the threat of an active shooter.

Join Preparis for our webinar on Tuesday, Feb. 19, from 2 – 3 p.m. (EST) as we discuss the essentials for mitigating the threat of workplace violence with our Preparis X-force Homeland Security expert Bill Hildebrand, a former Atlanta Police Department law enforcement professional who served 21 years protecting the metro area. Hildebrand trained in critical infrastructure with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Department of Justice.

Cooperating with the federal and state offices of Homeland security, Hildebrand conducted vulnerability assessments on a variety of facility types, from stadiums to corporate headquarters, including Turner Field, the Georgia Dome, World of Coke, Coca-Cola’s World Headquarters, the Georgia World Congress Center, Philips Arena, the Georgia Aquarium, the Bank of America building at Monarch Plaza, CSX Railroad, the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, plus many more. Hildebrand also serves as a senior training instructor for the Georgia Peace Officer Standards & Training council, which provides citizens with qualified, professionally trained, and ethical criminal justice professionals.

This opportunity to learn best practices will include:

– Classifications of workplace violence
– Insights to help businesses manage the threat of an active shooter
