The goal of this active shooter training is to teach you and your employees what to do in case of an active shooter situation. How do you survive? What actions should you take to protect yourself and others? What are the “do’s” and “dont’s” of during this type of crisis? The training video teaches viewers about “situational awareness” in the workplace and how to better be aware of your environment, what is happening around you, and the ability to look for things that just seem out of place or that could be dangerous.
Most active shooter situations will be over in a matter of minutes. That fact limits the availability of law enforcement to help you through an active shooter crisis. Unfortunately, the first sign of an active shooter being present is gunfire. Would you or your co-workers be able to recognize the sound of gunfire? It sometimes can be hard to recognize and this active shooter training video will help you differentiate between gunfire and other common sounds in the workplace.
This active shooter training video teaches you and your employees to run, hide or fight – in that order. The training discusses the fact that you must act quickly during an active shooter situation and that “freezing up” can get you killed. Further, the importance of learning to take cover during gunshots, learning to exit away from the shooter, and to zig-zag or crouch while running as fast as you can. These techniques, among the others taught in this active shooter training video will help keep you and your employees safe during this potentially horrific workplace scenario.
This active shooter training is 16 minutes in length and available as a DVD, USB Stick, or as an online streaming option. It is also available in either English or Spanish language.
