WICHITA FALLS, TX - On Wednesday, members of the Midwestern State University Small Business Development Center and MSU Police Department will come together for a presentation to help inform future and current business owners as well as employees about active shooter awareness.
It's all part of the SBDC Back to Business Wednesdays. According to SBDC Business Consultant Lynda Cannedy, the seminars are aimed at discussing topics that are of great interest to the business community.
"With all the active shootings that have taken place, we thought it would be a good time to bring in police. It is not that they want to scare people but they need to be prepared," said Cannedy.
On Wednesday, inside MSU'S Dillard Building 189, the SBDC and MSU Police will give over an hour long presentation from 11:45 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. filled with data based on a 47-page 2014 FBI report on active shooters. (Click HERE to read report)
Cannedy said that this presentation could be crucial to helping small business owners or future businesses owners who might not already have a plan in place for an active shooter situation.
"We don't want to lose any life that we don't have to. If this presentation could just save one life, it would be worth it, so we just want to get the word out," said Cannedy.
If you are not able to make the presentation, you can view it on a live stream from the SBDC Facebook page. (Click HERE for link.)
