Active Shooter Response Hands on Training Class

Join us for a 3 and a half hour Active Shooter Response Training Course led by well-trained veteran SWAT team leaders, with first-hand experience in hostage rescues and high-risk dignitary protection. Too many active shooter courses are hands-off, consisting of a video and perhaps a short lecture. ProActive Response Group’s mission is to fill in that knowledge gap with a complete active shooter training experience. 

This presentation will teach participants how to develop an emergency organizational action plan, incorporate regular training exercises (drills) and preventative measures, recognize and report potential warning signs of potentially violent behavior, and provide psychological first aid to primary and secondary impacted employees in the aftermath of an active shooter incident. 

The objectives of this training are to help participants: 

1. Identify steps of an emergency action plan 
2. Develop and implement a regular active shooter preparedness training including regular drills
3. Recognize indicators of potentially violent behavior and take preventative measures 
4. Provide psychological first aid to primary and secondary impacted employees post incident

If an active shooter event occurred, would you be ready?

Active shooter incidents are becoming everyday news headlines. While law enforcement and other first responders are regularly trained in responding to these incidents of violence, it’s the individuals already present in workplaces, religious establishments, and schools who are the true first line of defense. ProActive Response Group’s Active Shooter Training classes are designed to empower and equip those individuals to act when they find themselves in the midst of an unexpected crisis.
