November 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pmFREE
What Is An Active Shooter?
An active shooter is someone that opens fire on a group of unarmed, innocent people. Columbine, Aurora, Newton, Parkland Florida and most recently,
Squirrel Hill neighborhood, Pittsburgh.
According to the FBI there are nearly 100 Active Shooter incidents worldwide, that occur at churches, schools, corporations, doctors offices, lawyers offices and hospitals.Shootings can happen in many different locations, and they happen at random. You have no way of knowing in advance when or where this is going to happen. You may be sitting in church on Sunday, minding your own business, and have no idea that a psychopath is armed and is headed in your direction. The first indication you have that anything is wrong is when the gunman starts shooting. You have to be prepared to react to it.
What’s Your Plan?
While there are no guarantees, having an established and practiced plan can greatly increase your odds of survival in an active shooter situation. It is far better than doing absolutely nothing, which is what most people are doing right now. If you think about it, we have a plan for for almost every other kind of emergency we might face. We have a plan for when a hurricane is coming, we have a plan for when a tornado hits, we have a plan for when the fire alarm goes off. Why do so many people and organizations not have a plan when it comes to a gunman entering into a public center and opening fire?
Many people simply don’t want to think about something so horrible because it makes them feel helpless. But you will see that there are many things you can do. You have many advantages that you don’t even know about. Even a basic understanding and education in this area can save lives. By the time you finish this course, you will have that basic understanding and education.
