Fire is still a far greater threat to life and limb, statistically, than mass shootings. It would make sense to design buildings accordingly, which I think most of them already are.

I think what our emergency services are considering is having large masses herded into crowded and confined hallways. Moving along a straight corridor in mass during an ASHE.

Pulling the fire alarm in a school or high-rise could 
unlock every door in the building (or at least the stair towers).

Victims could be channeled into crowded and predictable avenues of egress where they can be intercepted and shot. Or targeted at the designated assembly point.

It's not just schools and buildings that require planning.

For open air festivals they recommend perimeter fences, roving police patrols, drones, security cameras, social media monitoring, bag checks, metal detectors, restricted entry and an “overwatch” police unit that monitors the event from a high perch.

Mass Casualty Trauma Triage Paradigms and Pitfalls

The report suggests the traditional triage approach used by paramedics for decades is no longer feasible to effectively respond to ASHE.

IMHO inappropriate in conjunction with back to school. Different scene in the U.S. I suppose.

This (19-minute podcast) from the NJ DHS ...
Quote
Mental illnesses are extremely common; mass violence is not. Despite the fear and public scrutiny, mass shootings are statistically rare events. But it is hard for most people to imagine that a mentally healthy person would deliberately commit an act of mass murder; thus, it is often assumed that the perpetrators of mass violence must be mentally ill. There is a tendency to overuse mental health problems as an explanation for violence, but the relationship is far more complex than typically presented. While there is a modest link between mental illness and violence, there is no basis for a generalized fear of people with mental illness. Having a mental illness does not predispose someone to violence of any type, and certainly not mass violence. 

In our Season Four finale, Steve Crimando of the New Jersey Department of Human Services’ Disaster and Terrorism Branch joins us again to unpack this complicated relationship and offer insights into the programs and resources that address both mental health and mass violence in the State ...

Man brought a shotgun (I think I read) to a crowded church of over 200 and started shooting. Within 6 seconds he already killed 2 but another man, a firearms instructor, stood up and shot him once putting an end to the shooting and undoubtedly saving many more lives.

6 seconds is a pretty solid response time to end a shooting.

Saw the video. Single head shot from 15-20 metres away, then other armed guys swarm toward the perpetrator.
Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

I've seen the video as well. One hell of a shot.

On one hand, you can applaud the use of firearms to end a situation with a rampaging gunman.

On the other hand, you can lament the fact that the average American needs to be armed in a church, a school, or a waffle house to ensure they are safe from rampaging gunmen.  I'll take Canada over that any day.

Not to sound morbid, just professionally curious.

Is the video of him responding in the news link??  It kept jumbling around while loading various ads, I couldn't find it.  If it's there, I'll take another look.  Sounds worth watching.
