Active Shooter Response Training


Any organization that holds gatherings, events, educational facilities, companies with a large amount of employees or places where the public can gather.



The curriculum is based on what to do in the terrible event of an active shooter. How to move to the scene and prevent further loss, also what to do after the shooter(s) have been stopped. In today’s world there should be someone in every business, educational facility and large gathering place (including churches) that has the understanding and ability to deal with this awful threat.


Participants should be prepared to train in all weather conditions. This program is both classroom and hours on the range. Participants should come to class with an open mind and a good attitude, willing to interact with other students in thought provoking scenarios.
