What is Active Shooter Defense Training?

Active shooter defense training is a methodology used to prevent, mitigate, respond to and recover from an active-shooter type attack. While both tragic and unfortunate; this training ensures the sustainability and efficacy of any organization’s emergency operations.


What is an Active Shooter?

An active shooter is any person actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a populated and confined area. While the term “active shooter” may imply the use of firearms, the term “active assailant” may be more appropriate as their tactics and methods are unpredictable and continue to evolve.


Why is Active Shooter Defense Important?

Preparing for an active-shooter/assailant type event is just as important as preparing for a fire, inclement weather, or medical emergency – it is a vital component of any organization’s emergency preparedness.

Active shooter defense training enhances emergency operations plans by teaching staff the warning signs and behaviors of a potential threat. Additionally, it empowers employees to respond and recover in the event of an attack.

Active shooter defense empowers staff by providing them options.
