Active Victim is a Comprehensive Program Intended to Help People Survive an Active Shooter Event.
Our training plan is customized to your organization’s specific needs. We will teach your employees what to do if an Active Shooter situation occurs with our Three Pillars.
PILLAR 1: AWARENESS AND REACTION
The Awareness phase uses presentations, videos, and lectures to educate and empower participants. We use real Active Shooter case studies so people better understand how, where, and why past incidents occurred. This knowledge base increases awareness, one of the most important steps in staying safe and building a plan. We explain what happens before an active shooter even fires the first shot to create a proactive strategy meant to decrease the risk of injury or death.
Reaction is next—what to do right after the first shot is fired. We use Cooper’s Color Code, a four-stage code developed by Jeff Cooper, a United States Marine and firearms instructor. Cooper’s Code is used by law enforcement to train “combat mindset” in the face of danger.
Our instructors carefully explain each stage to build Situational Awareness—the ability to identify, process, and comprehend what is going on during an emergency situation.
PILLAR 2: RESPONSE
We customize a Response Strategy to your facility, including preparing the facility and training your personnel. We will set up a Response Center and a Safe Room, and create the best plan for your specific needs, including a unique coding system for communication.
PILLAR 3: DEFENSE
When all else fails, it’s time to fight. We train your personnel in self-defense, armed combat (as needed), and emergency first aid. This training show your team how to fight and gives them the confidence to do so.
We use a variety of scenarios, including how to set up rooms and put defense drills to use. In armed combat training, specific individuals are trained and tested by our staff, including multiple training times and rigorous qualifications required to pass. Emergency first aid teaches your team the right things to do for an injury, such as the proper use of a tourniquet on and how to assess injuries.
Once the Three Pillars are completed, additional training is available, including as advanced firearms training and advanced self-defense. We will also set up a drilling schedule to keep training fresh, ensuring that your team is ready, no matter what or when.
