STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. – Sterling Insurance Group – one of the fastest-growing Insurance Brokerages in the county – hosted an Active Shooter in the Workplace seminar on Wed., May 16, 2018.

The seminar was led by Officer Todd Tyler, Public Safety Officer of the Huntington Woods Public Safety Department. Tyler has been training companies on best practices during an active shooter situation since 1996 – long before the phrase “active shooter” was even coined.

As a lifelong Metro Detroit resident, Tyler has been in law enforcement for 24 years. He provides hands on Active Shooter response training to all officers in Oakland County, as well as local government offices like City Halls.  

“Active Shooter situations and mass shootings have seen a sharp rise in the US and across the world recently,” said Joe Haney, President of Sterling Insurance Group. “Because these situations are difficult to predict, proactive training such as this workshop could be life-changing for businesses.”

Attendees gained valuable insight into best practices for an active shooter situation in the workplace. The presentation last about 70 minutes, and a Question & Answer period followed – lasting about 25 minutes. About 50 guests were in attendance, as well as Sterling Insurance Group staff members.

The main takeaway: businesses across all industries should have a well-rehearsed emergency action plan in place, should an active shooter situation ever arise.

“You will never regret being too prepared,” said Tyler.
