Anticipating the Threat:

From Crisis Prevention to Response


This impressive lineup of speakers have been involved with every imaginable type of crisis, from fires and bridge collapses to violence perpetrated by disgruntled employees, jilted lovers, and sophisticated terrorists. They tell us today's shooters have access to more and better weaponry and have ambitions for high body counts. They tell us the Twin Cities is a likely target for terrorists. They tell us it's only a matter of time.

But more importantly they will cover...

  • How to detect someone with criminal intentions;
  • How to keep situations from escalating;
  • How to defuse an intense situation.

  • What you, your staff and tenants can expect from police, fire, medical responders;
  • How to define roles so that you can support the work of the responders;
  • How to protect your property's personnel and assets and your company's reputation.

  • Points to include in a comprehensive communications plan;
  • Communicating with staff, tenants, building visitors; Spokesperson preparation and talking points for when the microphone is in your face;
  • Five mistakes that can cost your company money and reputation.
