An active shooter in your workplace killing or attempting to kill people is a horrible situation that no business wants to face. Unfortunately, they are unpredictable, evolve quickly, and cannot be completely prevented. With the proper training, however, you can learn to avert and prepare for potential active shooter situations.

Please join us for this comprehensive, full-day workshop with national experts to learn best practices during active shooter incidents and how to develop strategies to prepare for, train to survive, and recover from the aftermath of active shooter and workplace violence incidents.

You will learn about tactical self-protection and survival choices during active shooter incidents, including video analysis of how “real people” react during “real” shooting events. Don’t miss this opportunity to review active shooter incidents at malls, manufacturing facilities, healthcare, offices, houses of worship, colleges, schools and public settings along with a critical follow-up discussion on suggested preventive activities to increase survival.
