 Firearm Training Manual  91


In the event anyone is injured during or as a result of a shooting incident, you as a guard on duty, is expected to contact emergency medical personnel and local law enforcement immediately. What emergency medical assistance you provide to the injured person(s), if any, is dependent upon what directions and training you have received from your employer.

Since you may be carrying and using a firearm on the job, you are responsible to be prepared to act appropriately before, during and after a shooting. This includes being familiar with the emergency policies and procedures that your employer expects you to follow. If you have any questions, discuss the matter with your supervisor.
