Willis Towers Watson Launches New Active Shooter Program for Senior Living Facilities

Willis Towers Watson has introduced an Active Shooter/Armed Intruder Readiness Program for senior living communities.

The Active Shooter/Armed Intruder Readiness Program is designed to help senior living communities plan for, respond to and recover from active shooter events. Organizations can access the material online and customize it for their own use.

The materials include:

  • Critical action steps training video
  • Sample policy and procedure for active shooter/armed intruder
  • Company and community readiness plan and checklist
  • Webinar for active shooter awareness in a senior living community

“An active shooter event is something that no one wants to imagine happening in a senior living community, but the reality is that all places where people congregate, including senior living communities, are vulnerable,” said John Atkinson, managing partner, Senior Living practice, Willis Towers Watson. “This vulnerability calls for an increased need for preparedness,” he added.

The program was created in partnership with Sorensen, Wilder and Associates.

Willis Towers Watson currently offers management and human capital options to continuing care retirement communities, independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing and home health care organizations throughout North America.
