Active Shooter Training Video

Due to an increase in incidents on college campuses, schools and public places, it is increasingly important to have a plan for how to respond in an active shooter situation. The RUN.HIDE.FIGHT. video is an excellent demonstration of possible choices on how to survive an active shooter situation. An active shooter is an individual who is actively engaged in shooting or attempting to shoot or kill people in a confined and populated area. Active shooter situations are often over within 10 to 15 minutes, so it's important for individuals to be prepared both mentally and physically to react before law enforcement arrive on the scene. Whatever you decide to do, always remember Safety First.
