Even during a hospital emergency preparedness drill, seeing a mass notification of an active shooter can raise goosebumps. When the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center in Chicago faced an active shooter crisis, they took quick steps to protect staff and patients. Using LiveProcess, the hospital sent an active shooter notification to more than 3,500 employees instantly, with instructions to take cover. This is almost a best-case scenario for an active shooter event: no casualties, quick dissemination of information, and a swift resolution.
