2019 Breakfast Speaker Series: Active Shooter Scenarios Forum
The first Breakfast Speaker Series event of 2019 will tackle a topic too often seen in the media but from a business oriented perspective. While training exists for how to respond and survive in an active shooter scenario, many businesses are unaware of the precautions that can be taken to prevent such a tragedy, nor do they have any policy protocol on record on how to recover after the event. The chamber offers a unique chance to learn more on the topic on Tuesday, Feb. 26 at 7:30am at Fox Den Country Club from retired FBI Agent Rick Hill, Knox Co. Sherriff Tom Spangler and local business owner and security expert, Scott Brockamp of HisSecurity. Current sponsors include Presenting Sponsor Town of Farragut and Media Sponsor farragutpress.
