Violence Prevention & Active Shooter Survival   

  Modules:   
Trends and Potentials

Active Shooter and terrorist attacks have a profound effect on educational institutions, businesses and local communities. To understand the risks we need to be familiar with the latest trends of violence and terrorism. The Lessons Learned from past incidents provides valuable insights of the motives and methods used by Active Shooters and terrorists.

  
Indicators and Warnings

Acts of violence and Active Shooter attacks are not random or unpredictable. They are often the outcome of a long process and provide warning signs that are often ignored or misunderstood.

Identifying signs of dangers and understanding attack pre-cursors provide early warning and can help institutions help troubled individuals and prevent attacks. Knowing how to identify, correlate and share Essential Elements of Information (EEI) in a timely manner is essential.

  
Prevention

Schools, hospitals and businesses must take pro-active measures to anticipate dangerous circumstances and mitigate security risks before they occur. Being prepared and using preventive measures helps creates the perception of a secure environment. This is essential to the deterrence of potential threats and can also enhance response capabilities. Creating a safe learning and working environment significantly affects productivity and overall success.

  
Preparedness

To protect employees and students from internal or external threats organizations need to have All Hazards Emergency Operations Plans (EOP) that addresses all phases of the violence cycle. Implementing effective EOP begins with specifically trained individuals whose responsibilities coincide with a streamlined incident management function. Integrating the principles of the ICS/NIMS into your EOP help organizations comply with government mandates and establish best-practice emergency management standards.

  
Response

In order to survive Active Shooter or terrorist attacks, people at the scene must be able to work together and take immediate actions. In life threatening circumstances, we automatically resort to employing skills and a plan that have been practiced previously. We have no time, nor the presence of mind, to plan and execute a new course of action when under duress. Pre-incident training in effective response improves personal safety.

  
Last Resort Survival

What do you do to save yourself and others when you cannot escape and an Active Shooter is forcing his way through the door of your classroom or office intent on killing you (not to take you hostage)?

The techniques and tactics thought in this module are truly LAST RESORT SURVIVAL MEASURES, where you have only two choices, (1) do nothing and die or (2) respond as a team, using "Collective Resistance", and fight for survival.
