Active Shooter Response

If you unexpecedly found yourself in the chaos of an active shooter or mass casualty event, would you know what to do to survive?

Can you safely escape?

Is there a good place to hide?

Will you attack the shooter?

This seminar will address those issues and much more. From the start, participants will learn how to prepare before an incident takes place and learn the applications/options of Run – Hide – Fight along with the “when, where & how” they can be realistically applied. We then go beyond the options/concepts and explain what will happen to you both mentally and physically in these types of situations and how to use them to your advantage. And finally, no program would be complete without addressing last resort options when it comes to defending yourself and others. Knowing how to Respond, Assess, Protect & Identify Defenses during an active assailant assault could be the difference in your survival.

This program is tailored to your specific venue (Businesses, Government, Schools, Health care, Faith Based Institutions, Stadiums/Open Area Venues).
