Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, social unrest, and economic uncertainty, Americans are dealing with elevated levels of stress and emotions. This includes the homeless. Utility field workers, who are already experiencing an increase in violence, may encounter violence from the homeless while on the job.

That’s why The Power of Preparedness has added a segment to their Utilities training on how to manage encounters with the homeless.

The training covers the importance of empathy, common behaviors, and how to interact with the homeless.

Similar segments will be added to the training for restaurants and retail industries.

TPOP provides industry-specific active shooter preparedness training for:

  • Office facilities
  • Utilities and energy companies (in the field and in utility facilities)
  • QSR and table service restaurants
  • Food retail
  • Commercial retail
  • Healthcare facilities
  • Mass gatherings and entertainment venues
  • Houses of worship

Let’s talk today about your training needs.
