High-Angle Attack Assessment

May 13, 2020

Abstract

We help reduce the risk associated with the High-Angle Attack threat and High Ground/Elevated threat. As concealed- and mass-shooter threats continue to escalate, Thornton Tomasetti has developed a detailed assessment tool to better prepare facilities for potential incidents. Our team performs an on-site assessment to evaluate facilities from a medium-to-long range shooter’s perspective. We look for vulnerabilities – in weapons infiltration, shooting platforms (internal and external), ingress and egress options, and overwatch access from nearby high-rises. Our experts also identify the best locations for law-enforcement reaction forces and provide recommendations on effective emergency response. Thornton Tomasetti has helped numerous facility managers and operators obtain SAFETY Act venue coverage through the design and implementation of site-specific protective design measures that provide comprehensive security.
