Security Threat Awareness Training

Over the past seven years, there has been an average of 16.4 "active shooter" incidents per year nationally, that's roughly one every three weeks. A report published by the FBI stated that 60% of active shooter incidents were over before police could arrive on the scene. "Even when law enforcement was present or able to respond within minutes, civilians often had to make life and death decisions, and, therefore, should be engaged in training and discussions they may face."

This session will focus on survival training to survive in an active shooter event. The focus is on survival mindset, situation awareness and emotional readiness and is followed by "Run, Hide, Fight" and when to apply the appropriate tactics for this type of event. The conclusion is discussing a hostage situation, and how it differs from an active shooter scenario and what to expect from law enforcement.
