Best Practice Active Shooter Defense - scalable for a district of any size.

Why Schools Need Scalable Best Practice Active Shooter Defense 

According to recent FBI reports, active-shooter type attacks continue to rise. Therefore, school districts must implement best practice active shooter defense to prepare their schools.

Problem: Allocating two days to train teachers is unrealistic and not sustainable – schools of all sizes need a scalable solution. 

That is why we developed AlerT. 

AlerT – Options-based Active Shooter Defense Training with Options

With several levels of training options available, our AlerT (Assess, lockdown, evade, resist, Tell) system provides training that meets the exact needs of school district staff.

 

AlerT training options for school districts include:

 

Base level: 30 minutes of eLearning and AlerT cards.  

This is our minimum acceptable level of training.  While it is not as effective as instructor-led training, our 30-minute eLearning course provides a solid introduction to civilian active shooter response. 

Additionally, the AlerT Active Shooter Response Card, which is designed to be work with the district ID badge, reinforces the core AlerT training strategies.  

This level of training is ideal for:

 

  • Districts with a smaller budget
  • Districts that have already done extensive active shooter response training, looking to refresh or update
  • Large districts looking to scale training across all staff in a short time period

Intermediate: 30 minutes of eLearning, AlerT cards and Leadership training

The Intermediate training options is our most common AlerT implementation. All staff complete the 30-minute eLearning course and receive an AlerT Response Card. District and school leadership attend a four-hour instructor-led AlerT training. 

While not a train-the-trainer, this session prepares leadership to respond to an active-shooter type incident. 

This level of training is ideal for:

 

  • Small-medium districts seeking in-depth training for administrators
  • Large districts looking to scale training across all staff in a short time period
  • Districts with designated Emergency Response Teams, requiring more in-depth training

Advanced: 30 minutes of eLearning, AlerT cards and Training at Each School

Emergencies are local; and this option prepares each school – in a site-specific manner.

All staff complete the 30-minute eLearning course and receive an AlerT Response Card. Employees also participate in an instructor-led, two-hour training at their school.

Our expert AlerT Trainers will apply training and scenarios unique to each school’s architecture, student demographics, and staffing.

This level of training is ideal for:

 

  • Districts with dedicated security assessment and Emergency Response Teams
  • Districts seeking to improve drills, physical security, and response times from public safety agencies

 

Expert: Custom 30-minute eLearning Course, AlerT cards and Train-the-Trainer  

We view this as our full knowledge transfer.

We create a custom eLearning course and AlerT Response Cards for all staff, and work with local experts to implement staff training in our two-day train-the-trainer course. 

Afterwards, your AlerT trainers will have full access to all of our best practice active shooter defense training resources.

Also, we can arrange for one of our experienced trainers to help your instructors implement the first few trainings (they are always the hardest!).

This level of training is ideal for:

 

  • Districts with dedicated security assessment and Emergency Response Teams
  • Districts interested in training in-house experts to handle training across the district
  • Districts interested in providing training to parents and students
