Active Shooter Awareness Seminar

Do you know how to respond in a situation with an active shooter?

Lone Shooter Awareness Course in ClevelandAn active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in  a confined and populated area.  Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly.  Because active shooter situations are often over within 10 to 15 minutes, before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with the situation.

Our Active Shooter Awareness Seminar is designed to prepare teachers, office personnel, congregations, or individuals how to react to a shooter.  This seminar will provide statistical data and valuable information on how to respond in an incident.  You will learn what to do, how to seek cover, how and when to contact 911 or law enforcement and what information is needed while help is arriving.

Knowing the basics can be the difference.   During our safety assessment, we will make suggestions for possible improvements or places that would be areas of concern that might require attention if an event occurs.  This course will not show how law enforcement responds to these incidents, but it will aid you and others around you in knowing what to do until you can safely get away from the area.
