An active shooter is a person determinedly engaged in killing or attempting to kill people. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly.
The threat of indiscriminate gun violence hasn’t diminished. That’s why active shooter preparedness training efforts continue to escalate across the country.
The goal is to help lower the body count by equipping people with the latest life-saving preparedness training.
Built with the assistance of national subject matter experts from the law enforcement community, this free online course is intended for any audience, at work, at home, in school.
Who is this free active shooter preparedness training course for?
Everyone. Active shooter events happen at more than just schools and higher learning facilities like colleges and universities.
This course was designed with all ages in mind.
Talk with your family. If you have school-age children in your life, talk with their schools, ask about their planning and response. Ask children what lock-down measures and drills mean in their school and how they work. Discuss what you would do if you and your family were ever involved in an active shooter incident. Proper preparation makes you and your family safer.
