- Be aware of your environment and any possible dangers
- Take note of the two nearest exits in any facility you visit
- If you are in an office, stay there and secure the door
- If you are in a hallway, get into a room and secure the door
- As a last resort, attempt to take the active shooter down. When the shooter is at close range and you cannot flee, your chance of survival is much greater if you try to incapacitate him/her.

|Spotlight on Workers with Disabilities
NYS DOL Workers with Disabilities Tax Credit Program
We believe in the importance of disability inclusion in the workforce," says the
New York State Department of Labor.
"Our Workers with Disabilities Tax Credit incentivizes businesses to bring New Yorkers with developmental disabilities - an often underrepresented population - into the workplace."
The Workers with Disabilities Tax Credit (WDTC) program provides tax credits to for-profit businesses/organizations that hire individuals with developmental disabilities (
to be confused with WETC).
To learn more about the Program, click here.
Article: Hiring People with Disabilities is Good Business
"For years, companies have maintained low expectations about hiring people with disabilities. Most of these companies believed that employees with disabilities could not perform well in the workplace and that actively hiring them would drag company performance and profits down.
Thankfully, over time, many employers have come to understand that these perceptions are untrue. And new research strongly suggests that the opposite - that hiring people with disabilities is good for business.
A recent study has shown, for the first time, that companies that championed people with disabilities actually outperformed others - driving profitability and shareholder returns. Revenues were 28 percent higher, net income 200 percent higher, and profit margins 30 percent higher. Companies that improved internal practices for disability inclusion were also four times more likely to see higher total shareholder returns."
