MSA Security And BEOC Alliance To Host Symposium On Active Shooter Trends Impacting Schools At NJIT Featuring Keynote By Newtown First-Responder Lt. Anthony Schirillo

NEWARK, N.J., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MSA Security (MSA), an industry leader in high consequence threat protection and specialized training dedicated to helping schools enhance their security measures, today announced that its security experts will present on key active shooter trends impacting schools during a free symposium held exclusively for educators at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in affiliation with the Business Emergency Operations Center (BEOC) alliance.

Connecticut State Police Lieutenant and Stratford, Conn. Emergency Management Director Anthony J. Schirillo, whose personnel were some of the first-responders to arrive at Sandy Hook Elementary during the mass-shooting incident in Newtown, Conn., will speak about his behind-the-scenes experience of these highly unpredictable events in a keynote speech. In addition to Lt. Schirillo's keynote address and security sessions with compelling research data led by MSA's active shooter threat experts, Dr. Michael Chumer, who oversees the NJIT and BEOC alliance, and renowned Security Consultant Patrick V. Fiel Sr. will also discuss trends in school safety raised by the increase in active shooter incidents across the U.S.

"MSA has gathered some of the nation's most experienced safety advisors and threat experts to help educators better understand and prepare for active shooter incidents," said Michael O'Neil, President of MSA Security. "This symposium will cover all security elements needed in the design and execution of a robust active shooter security plan. The addition of Lt. Schirillo provides key personal insight of a first-responder from the Newtown shooting that is invaluable in understanding the dynamics of an active shooter event."
