At this years 48 Hours of Adrenaline one of the “Hot topics” was how to deal with an Active Shooter.  FAST currently doesn’t have a standardized curriculum for this specific topic although we certainly have several advanced class plans that can answer this question.  Does FAST need to put its foot in the ring on this?  What does FAST have to offer that will add to this topic?  FDG is currently looking in to a class plan that might be of some benefit.  Let us know if you what to get on board!
