Active Shooter Safety

How to Save Your Life in Close Contact Lethal Threat Situations
3.5 Hour Personal Safety Class

Class Description

This class is based on the United States Department of Homeland Security method of: Run, Hide, Fight.

Do you know what to do if you hear shots fired in your workplace? Do you know what to do if you come face-to-face with an armed gunman? Have you thought it through or will you just freeze? Most active shooter training focuses on running or hiding, but what are you supposed to do in a close contact situation where those are not options? This class covers offensive techniques that the average person can perform to save their life in a close contact lethal threat situation. All experts agree that psychological preparedness training is a huge advantage in any dangerous close quarters attack situation. Several case studies in the U.S. will be examined along with small group and paired psychological preparedness drills during the class. Hands on demonstrations of close contact weapons (safety cats, expandable batons, mace, strobe flashlights, electronic stun guns, etc.) and resources for further information will be provided.
