Comments on National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 3000 Standard for an Active Shooter/Hostile Event Response Program (ASHER)

NFPA 3000 standard comments

NFPA recently introduced its first provisional standard, NFPA 3000, Standard for an ASHER program. Created with insight from multiple public safety and first responder disciplines such as fire, emergency medical services and law enforcement, NFPA 3000 aims to provide advanced reaction guidance to a hostile event through unified planning, response and recovery.

A free readable version of the standard is available on NFPA’s website. This paper from the Security Industry Association examines the impact of the standard to physical security stakeholders and provides a bevy of additional resources, tools and supplementary standards that can help in conjunction with NFPA 3000.
