Response to Active Shooter

Life in today’s society has changed. Now while you are enjoying a movie, shopping at the mall, studying in school or hard at work, the real-world threat of an armed and active shooter can change your life in an instant. Have you ever considered what you would do if you were forced to confront an active shooter? How you would survive?

Now you can get the professional training you need to survive a violent confrontation in any environment. Street Safe Defense Texas has developed a seminar that will give you the “Survival Mindset,” with the life-saving skills and protocols you need to survive these deadly encounters.

Response to Active Shooter Seminar

This is a 3-hour public safety presentation on threat assessment and responses to active shooters in a corporate, public, or school environment. This seminar is specifically tailored for the layperson working within a corporate environment, those who work/study within a school environment, or citizens traveling nationally/internationally. The sad truth is anyone who goes to public places can benefit from this seminar.

This course is taught by retired law enforcement professionals with extensive safety and security experience working within the corporate, scholastic and travel environments. It provides you with a comprehensive overview on the serious threats posed by anger-generated, psychotic, and/or armed, violent politico-terrorist extremists who select “soft target” corporate, business, entertainment, or educational environments as their killing zones. The Response to Active Shooters Seminar will provide you with the mental, physical and medical skills necessary to survive the active shooter threat.

Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
  • Review of active shooter incidents nationally/internationally;
  • Profiling and identifying potential and active shooter "ticking time bombs";
  • Making life and death decisions;
  • The psychological and physiological aspects of recognizing and responding to life threats;
  • The conscious and subconscious mind;
  • The Active Shooter Response Protocol: How to Run, Hide and Fight; Do's and Don'ts: the Keys to Personal Survival; Situational Awareness;
  • Pre-planning for a personal and/or corporate response to an active shooter;
  • Pre-contact threat assessment;
  • The law enforcement response - what to expect;
  • The Winning Mindset - How to train, obtain and maintain it.
