Active Shooter Defense Training

AlerT active shooter defense training is an open source, options-based program that fully adheres to best practices recommended by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Department of Education, FEMA, and the Department of Justice.

AlerT is currently the only active shooter defense training designed to account for the full spectrum of active shooter preparedness – prevention through recovery. 

Assess – lockdown – evade – resist – Tell

Sustainable Active Shooter Defense helps get you before X.
The “X” on the timeline represents an active shooter attack. Everything after  “X” is the response.  Everything before the “X” is an opportunity to prepare and possibly prevent the attack.  AlerT helps you get before “X.”
