Active Shooter Survival Training for all Businesses & Organizations

You should be able to go to work, send your kids to school or take college classes yourself, enter a government building or healthcare facility, attend your place of worship, go to the movies or shopping at the mall, or see your favorite band play, without being afraid for your life.

But our society is becoming increasingly violent and less than 5% of Americans have taken any form of active shooter survival training. How prepared are you if violence suddenly forces itself into your world?

No one should have to worry about not seeing their loved ones at the end of the day because some coward decides to take their inability to cope with the world they’ve created, out on innocent people in the form of mass killing.

But right now, today, this is a fear that many Americans must live with daily and to me, it is unacceptable!

What Is ALIVE Active Shooter Survival Training?

ALIVE stands for Assess, Leave, Impede, Violence, and Expose. These are the steps that anyone can take to more effectively respond should you ever be confronted with an active shooter situation, terrorist attack, violent attacker in the workplace, and other potentially deadly events.

1.    Recognize the sound of real (not Hollywood) gunfire

2.    Have confidence in knowing how to respond appropriately to an active shooter and defeat the instinct to freeze.

3.    Know the appropriate steps to take based on the situation

4.    Feel empowered to take those steps rather than believing you are going to die.

5.    Be ferociously determined to go home to your family at the end of the day by doing whatever it takes, instead of resigning yourself to never seeing your loved ones again.

6.    And if you are responsible for others — as an employer, manager, teacher or caretaker— you will know how to help them survive.

Upon completion of the ALIVE Active Shooter Survival Program you will be better prepared to recognize potential violent events before they happen and respond to acts of violence by taking the ALIVE survival steps, that may potentially save your life!

Following the steps of A.L.I.V.E. will make you better prepared for an active shooter.  Does is make sense to remain unprepared?  Ask the people that love and depend on you what they think.

How to survive an active shooter


A testimonial from an ALIVE class attendee survivor

Mr. Julian,

"On October 1st I was in Las Vegas at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. Standing at the right of the stage with my boyfriend watching Jason Aldean perform and all of a sudden it sounded like firecrackers ...... then it went off again, the noise was coming from the right of us. Jason and the band ran off the stage, we turned around and two people were shot behind us, one in the face and one in the chest. Everyone immediately went forward and got down in a big pile. Right then in that very second when the third round of shots went off as I was laying there attempting to cover my neck and head with my arm believe it or not the training of yours that I had listened to years prior instantly popped into my head. I told my boyfriend “we need to run. We cannot stay here. When he stops to reload this next time I am running!” He was hesitant at first and I think he could tell that I was running either way. And so he grabbed my hand and he knew just what to do, we ran as fast as we could, stayed low, stopping and hiding while shots were fired and sprinted in between. We ran straight to the Excalibur where we were staying and I sent a text to my parents at 10:14pm from the lobby of Excalibur. That is how quickly we were out of there.

I truly believe taking that training is what told me to make that decision and say without a doubt that we have to run and ultimately saved us. Had we stayed there we may have gotten shot, had we hesitated longer then we could have been trampled or who knows what.

Anyway, I know I’m just one of many that have had your training course and I just wanted to let you know that I really think in that split second it saved us."

Thank you.

You cannot always stop bad things from happening, but you can be prepared when they do!

Using a common sense approach based on what has been learned from prior active shooter events,

Security expert Michael Julian, President of MPS Security & Protection and National Business Investigations, Inc., has developed the ALIVE Active Shooter Survival course that teaches behavior and the perpetrator mentality, and security and survival mindsets to aid in recognizing possible signs of a pending attack, and reaction techniques that take the fundamental “Run, Hide, Fight” response to the next level.

You’ll learn to: 

  • Become more aware of your surroundings,
  • Prepare for such an event by being “proactively reactionary”,
  • Evaluate an active shooter situation more quickly and efficiently,
  • Decide and take the best action necessary for your survival,
  • Dominate the attacker, if necessary, using a kill or be killed mentality,
  • Navigate the chaos that comes after the event, and
  • Train family, friends, and coworkers how to do the same.

Senior Vice President – Springboard Social Enterprises

"I am writing to express our appreciation for the excellent presentation you delivered on May 9, 2018 to our group of managers and supervisors. My management team was begging me to find suitable training for our company. Your training was the answer.  You captivated all in attendance on how to survive an active shooter event, and we realized how very little we actually understood about being aware and prepared if an event ever occurred at our location."

Lisa Turner, LCSW

Palomar Family Counseling Service, Inc.

Michael was knowledgeable, engaging, and professional.  The training was valuable and we – a nonprofit community counseling agency – now feel better prepared for nearly-unthinkable scenarios.

Sandra Martinez

Sr. HR Generalist, West Pak Avocado, Inc.

"The ALIVE training was impactful. It really demonstrated how vulnerable we can be if we are not prepared. I am more confident than ever that we made the right choice in selecting Michael for the ALIVE training.  The knowledge we gained is priceless."

Dave Morrison

Safety Risk Officer - Rancho California Municipal Water District

"Thank you for a great presentation on Active Shooter Survival. Your ALIVE program was easy to remember and had extremely positive evaluations. The days following the presentation, I had several District employees comment to me on how much they learned and they felt more confident on how to react in the event of an active shooter."

Rhonda Warner

VP Operations, Murrieta Chamber of Commerce

"It’s a topic I don’t like to think about but it’s becoming more and more common in this crazy world. It’s important for me to know how to help myself or others around me in the case of an active shooter situation. Michael Julian’s ALIVE training was very eye opening. He gave me the tools to keep me more aware of my surroundings, reading body language and what reaction techniques I can use. Nobody really knows how they will react at that horrific time but I am definitely more prepared on whatever decision I chose to make and there is only three “Run, Hide or Fight”.

Thank you Michael Julian & MPS Security staff. You are making the world a better place!"

"Thank you very much for the valuable training on 'How to Survive an Active Shooter". The training was so useful and relevant. Your style and content was great and it truly had an impact. As I walked around the offices many who took the training were praising it and talking about it. All of them said that they all came away more aware and better prepared, they all left with something new and extremely valuable.

Thank you again and I will be contacting you in the future to schedule the next level of training. "

John Long

"What a great course. Having been in Law Enforcement and currently in the security field - you have done a great job in putting this together. Much more informative than the normal "RUN, HIDE, FIGHT" course of instruction. I definitely would recommend your course to others."

Jake Johnson

“Finished the accelerated ALIVE Active Shooter Survival Training course today.  I’ve taken several of these types of courses and this one is my favorite, plus it’s relatively inexpensive and far superior (IMO) to the Run, Hide, Fight that so many places teach.”
