This Seminar Provides Participants With The Knowledge, Techniques, and Skills That Will Best Equip Them to Survive an Active Shooter Incident


Active Shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Because most incidents occur within minutes, the survival of individuals often depends on preparation and their ability to respond. The average duration of an ASI is five minutes, while the average police entry response time is ten minutes. After-Action studies have clearly shown that in many incidents of this type, a number of victims died when the means to survive was available to them. Education, preparedness, training, and awareness are keys to surviving any Active Shooter Incident.

At the end of this seminar, participants will be familiar with:
• Prevention and Preparation Techniques and Procedures
• Necessity and preparations of developing an Emergency Response Plan (ERP)
• How to recognize indicators of an active shooter before an incident occurs
• Known behavior patterns of active shooters before and during an incident
• Employing Situational Alertness and proper Immediate Response Procedures
• Actions to take when confronted with an active shooter (Run – Hide – Fight)
• Effective response procedures and tactics for escaping, evading and responding
• Emergency Tactical Response
• Establishing and Using Safe Rooms
• Correct responsive actions upon arrival of law enforcement personnel.
