Hostile Events Preparedness Series

Our Hostile Events Preparedness Series (HEPS) is intended to give organizations a complete preparedness solution to addressing the threat of a hostile event. What Are Hostile Events? We use the term “Hostile Event” to encompass a variety of events involving the killing or attempt to kill in public, where actions can be taken to prevent or reduce additional deaths or injuries. This includes active shooter incidents, workplace violence and workplace attacks, lone actor and low-tech terrorism, complex coordinated terrorist attacks, and other related activities.
Working with premier partners to ensure the most complete and expert support, Gate 15 is available to help organizations mitigate the risks associated with a potential Hostile Event to protect your people, property and interests.
What is HEPS?

HEPS is an acronym for Gate 15’s approach to preparing
people and organizations for Hostile Events and stands for
our Hostile Events Preparedness Series.

What is Preparedness?

Preparedness is a deliberate process designed to ensure organizational readiness to respond to potential incidents. Gate 15 advocates for the use of the FEMA Preparedness Cycle, a best practice approach that fosters progressive development and continuous improvement. The Cycle includes the following steps: Plan; Organize & Equip; Train; Exercise; Evaluate & Improve; and repeat. Whenever possible, we employ the Homeland Security Exercise & Evaluation Program (HSEEP) methodology for exercises and our Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) approach to ensure continuous improvement.
