Interested in learning more about Evaluating the Safety of Building Layouts In Light of Active Assailant Threats? If so, catch Tim Brewer’s presentation on the topic this week at Global Security Exchange (GSX by ASIS) in Las Vegas, Nevada. ASIS International is the world’s largest association for security management professionals and is the globally recognized leader for education, networking, and information resources. Formerly the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits, GSX by ASIS unites the full spectrum of security for one powerful, global event. Not to mention, a visit to Las Vegas is always fun.
While experience is crucial when choosing a floor plan that reduces the likelihood and effects of active assailant threats, applying risk-based analytical approaches improves the evaluation of alternative designs. Our approach considers various occupant egress simulations, reviews their ability to identify local choke points, and compares plan layout options in active assailant threat scenarios to select an optimal floor plan that provides for areas of refuge and efficient utilization of mass notification systems.
