Hope in the Midst of Chaos: The Las Vegas Shooting Story

Quiet turned to terror the evening of Sunday October 1, 2017 at the Combined Communications Center of Las Vegas. A lone gunman had opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival, on the famous Las Vegas Strip, where 22,000 concert-goers were in attendance. Calls poured into the center as people were running for their lives. From gunshot wounds to trample victims, misinformation to scene safety issues, Matt Grogan from Las Vegas Fire and Rescue discusses his experience that evening the lessons they learned from this event, and how you can prepare and adapt for a new normal.

The Denise Amber Lee Foundation was founded by Denise’s loving husband, Nathan, who sought changes to a 9-1-1 system that failed her that day. The Foundation’s Mission Statement is to promote and support Public Safety, through uniform training, standardized protocols, defined measurable outcomes, and technological advances to 9-1-1. Our vision is to be the emotional driving force for changes to the 9-1-1 system in order to minimize human error. We envision a time when a citizen’s first call for help will be answered by a state-of-the-art 9-1-1 call center staffed with dedicated and highly trained professionals.
