At any mass casualty incident, especially one involving an active shooter, emergency responders have two priorities: stop the killing and stop the dying.

Stopping the killing includes planning for terrorism incidents and practicing warm zone entry with law enforcement, as well as equipping EMS providers with appropriate personal protective equipment, like body armor.

Stopping the dying requires preparation for immediate action to provide hemorrhage control and moving patients to collection points for rapid transit to definitive care.
