Library Hosts HealthLINE Meeting and Active Shooter Presentation

Staff are invited to attend a presentation by Lt. Dan Birbeck, Dallas County Hospital District Police Department at Parkland, entitled “Citizen’s Response to Active Shooter” at 10:30am on Thursday, January 19, 2012, in the Auditorium. It will last about an hour.

Many attended his excellent program in the fall of 2010 when then Sergeant Birbeck was first here. We have now added Code Silver Active Shooter to our list of emergency codes, so this is an especially timely presentation for those who have not seen it.

Lt. Birbeck is the featured speaker for the quarterly meeting of HealthLINE, the Dallas-Fort Worth organization of health science librarians and information professionals, which includes the medical libraries of UT Southwestern, UNT Health Science Center, Baylor, and a number of local hospitals as institutional members. TSRHC Medical Library Manager Mary Peters will begin serving a term as Chair of HealthLINE at this meeting, after completing a year as Chair-Elect in charge of programming. Mary Peters, Mary Anne Fernandez and the HealthLINE board invite all TSRHC staff to join the meeting at 10:30 for this presentation.
