Plan. Prepare. Act.

If involved in an active shooter situation, you must be prepared both mentally and physically. Will you know what to do?

In many cases, there is no pattern or method to the selection of victims by an active shooter, and these situations are, by their very nature, unpredictable and evolve quickly. Resources such as the flyer below, or the training we offer, raise awareness of the indicators of an active shooter incident and how to respond.
