Speaker: Ryan Searles
Topic: Active Shooter Response Training
(The A,B,C’s of Active Shooter Response)
We often associate active shooter incidents with schools, but most people aren’t aware that active shooter incidents happen at businesses twice as often. These events can dramatically impact operations, lives, and communities. While we may feel as though we have no control over this alarming trend, organizational leaders are obligated to prepare their organizations to respond if faced with such a situation. In this session, we’ll discuss how to gather, assess, and synthesize external environmental information related to active shooter incidents to ultimately guide your organization through strategic decisions that will improve the company’s competitive advantage to stay in business, should such a tragic event occur. Attendees will gain knowledge regarding best available risk management strategies regarding this topic, including avoidance, mitigation, and acceptance.
As Vice President, Risk Management for The Texas Group, Mr. Searles develops customized curriculum on topics ranging from Work Place Violence Prevention, Active Shooter Response Training, self- defense, OSHA, CPR, weapons, and tactics. He possesses a comprehensive background in complex problem-solving and relationship building derived from conducting domestic and global operations across five continents. Mr. Searles has managed risk upon multiple lines to protect life and safety, critical infrastructure, as well as high-value property and equipment.
Ryan conducts corporate training, Vulnerability, Threat & Risk Assessments, Loss Prevention Consulting, and Policy and Procedure writing, which he has done for numerous Fortune 100 companies. Mr. Searles brings more than 16 years of professional experience in “in-the-field” security, force protection, and risk management for multiple-jurisdictional responses at local, state, regional, and national levels. He is credited with measurable accomplishments, including leading tactical teams of 90+ personnel in dynamic, fast-paced environments. Mr. Searles is a Certified ALERRT Instructor, and is certified to teach Medical, Civilian, and Law Enforcement Response to Active Shooter Emergencies, Firearms, and Conflict Resolution, to name just a few. Ryan contributed to the development of ASIS International’s Active Shooter Response Training, which is still in use today.
