Eric Anderson photoDid you know 47% of active threat incidences occurred in businesses?  What actions would you take?

According to the FBI, Active Shooter Incidents are on the rise.  Workplace violence is a growing concern in both the public and private sectors.  This instructor-led course is designed to bridge the gap between responding officers and businesses in an active threat situation.  It is not about fear mongering. It is about empowering individuals. You learn how to prevent, report, and protect yourself and your employees from an active threat during the critical moments while waiting for a police presence to arrive and what to expect from the officers once they are on scene.

In this presentation, you will:

  • Learn actions to take when confronted by an active shooter situation
  • Learn how to cause distraction to the threat
  • Establish proper practice for an active shooter, the modern fire drill
