SCENARIO

Your day started off like any other until you got the call you’ve always dreaded: there’s a report that shots are being fired at your local middle school. The first news is that there are fatalities and panicked children are calling their parents, who are now showing up at the school in addition to the local media hounds.

Your task as a first responder is to develop a crisis intervention plan to determine the cause of the shooting, deal with the media and the parents, and stop the violence before more students get killed or injured.
