Active Shooter Basics: Training the masses
For those schools who do not have an educational/training program, this will provide the core concepts and material needed to start one.
Attendees of this webinar will play the role of audience members in a basic “active shooter/killer” class as it might be presented to older students (9th grade through college undergraduate), faculty, staff, and parents (though much will apply even to children in Kindergarten). For those schools who do not have an educational/training program, this will provide the core concepts and material needed to start one. For those who already have a program, it will provide a chance to see what a different program includes, and why.
The program presented will include:
- Recognizing danger signs/Knowing when to act
- The three main emergency options in an active shooter incident
- What to do if you encounter police or armed security response
- What you can do to help others who might be injured
