    Resiliency – Preparing for an Active Shooter and Empowering Staff On January 27th 2015 UCSF Medical Center Emergency Management in collaboration with other internal departments: Administration, Emergency Department, Mission Bay Transition, Nursing, Security Services, and Spiritual Care along with our community partners: American Medical Response (AMR), San Francisco Sheriff’s Office, and UCSF Police Department conducted an operations-based functional Active Shooter Drill at UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay. The purpose of the drill is to prepare for a coordinated response to an active shooter in the Mission Bay Emergency Department within the functional areas of Safety and Security, Communication, Resources and Assets, Staff Responsibilities and Patient Clinical and Support Activities. The Active Shooter drill was a two-hour interdepartmental drill focused with two separate scenarios on field level and hospital response to acknowledge the reality of the issue and empower staff to practice Run, Hide, and Fight. In any type of emergency, people don’t want to go places they haven’t gone before or use devices they have never seen. This Active Shooter drill provided exposure and experience for staff to test out possible procedures and to problem solve appropriately during an actual emergency incident/event. Every measure was made to ensure the safety of all those involved, mentally and physically. This film chronicles and highlights preparedness activities through the Active Shooter drill as well as demonstrating the importance of empowering staff through emergency preparedness.
