Active Shooter Training

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the fact many venues and vendors are not sending staff to offsite, elective events with concern to the state of the Coronavirus, we have elected to postpone the training seminar.  All those who have purchased tickets will be refunded and a new date will be announced at a later time.


Bringing this seminar to the Wadsworth Mansion was a team effort, after a conversation between Creative Concepts by Lisa, Events Owner Lisa Antonecchia and Wadsworth Mansion Executive Director Megan Bush. “Being in the event industry we are constantly working with knew groups of people and locations, and we need to be prepared for the ever changing landscape of our surroundings. We need to not only do our jobs but expand the parameter to include public safety and awareness.” Lisa Antonecchia


This seminar is geared to a wide range of professionals, Event and Activity Staff, Educators and College Staff and Administrators, First Responders and Municipality Staff, in essence all are welcome! In an ever changing world it is the facilitators of these social, school and community events that attendees are looking to in order to be prepared in unknown situations. All are welcome, to learn and network.
