The Be Ready Alliance Coordinating for Emergencies (BRACE) and Volunteer Florida have teamed up to develop and conduct an exercise entitled Workplace Down – An Active Shooter Tabletop Exercise.

This exercise will serve as an opportunity for the staff and management that make up your organization’s workplace to work through scenario information and injects dealing with an active shooter incident occurring within your office.

You must represent a Non-Profit Organization, Church, Community Based Organization or Faith Based Organization to participate in this exercise.

During the exercise, workplace management and employees will have the opportunity to work together as a team as they face the various challenges associated with responding to a workplace active shooter incident.
