Webinar 1

Active Shooter in ASL

Introduction to Active Shooter Response training for the Deaf and Interpreters – a cursory discussion on the terms, definitions, meanings, and means for preparation and response to an Active Shooter Incident for individuals whom are Deaf, hard of hearing, and/or American Sign Language Interpreters.


Topics covered include: basic personal preparation and readiness, how to start the dialogue of response procedures with colleagues and clients, the need for continuing training in both preparation and response, and a survey of trainings available online and in-person. The target audience for this course are interpreters who desire skills and knowledge to be prepared in a variety of settings.

After completing this course, learners will be able to explain the steps to take if confronted with an active threat, explain what to do when police arrive on the scene, and utilize resources for further training. These learning objectives will be presented with emphasis on the ethical considerations of the American Sign Language Interpreter for the Deaf as defined by the RID Code of Professional Conduct, specifically the applicability of confidentiality (1.0) in regards to reporting suspicious or threatening behavior in the workplace and/or in an educational setting (1.3) and the necessity of specific professional development (7.0) within the auspices of specific requirements by the Interpreter’s respective employer (7.1,7.2).
