"It’s not if, but when, a mass shooting happens in your community."

– Mayor Nan Whaley, Dayton OH

When a public mass shooting takes place, it falls on our nation’s mayors to respond. UnitedOnGuns created the Mass Shooting Protocol & Playbook to support local governments.

The Mass Shooting Protocol is a four-page overview of a mayor’s role during the first 24 hours after a mass shooting. The Mass Shooting Playbook is a resource guide mayors can use to prepare for, respond to, and help survivors and their community recover from a mass shooting.

Mayors need to prepare. UnitedOnGuns is developing a template mayors can use to organize a tabletop exercise in their cities. Please contact us for more information about preparedness.
