Responding to an Active Shooter Incident: Buffalo Crossroads Clinic
The Allina Health Buffalo Crossroads Clinic experienced an active shooting on Feb. 9, 2021 that tragically took the life of Lindsay Overbay, resulted in the injury of four team members and deeply affected the Buffalo Crossroads team. Allina Health’s communicators needed to quickly support internal employees while balancing the many requests of external stakeholders, including the media.
Conny Bergerson, director, Allina Health Systems Communications, will share lessons learned on guiding an organization through a tragedy including how early decisions impact the tone for the entire response and what you can do now to help your organization during a time of crisis. She is also looking forward to answering your questions.
