Active Shooter Survival Training for Businesses That Prioritize Employee Safety
Active shooting incidents occur in multiple business-related settings, some of which include governmental buildings, commercial and retail businesses, and even law enforcement and military complexes.
As a business owner, Human Resources, Risk or Security Management professional, you are in a unique position to help your staff gain the knowledge necessary to survive this type of event – wherever they occur – thereby promoting your company as an entity that is willing to invest in its employees’ health, safety and welfare.
One way to do this is to bring a certified A.L.I.V.E. Active Shooter Survival Training Instructor to your place of business or other venue to teach your staff the steps that, when taken, can improve their chances of survival if ever in an active shooting scenario.
A.L.I.V.E. stands for Assess, Leave, Impede, Violence, and Expose. Developed by safety expert and owner of MPS Security & Protection, Michael Julian, the A.L.I.V.E. Active Shooter Survival Training Program teaches participants the specific responses that, when followed, can help inhibit an active shooter from inflicting further mass harm.
Additionally, when presented in-person by an A.L.I.V.E. Active Shooter Survival Training Instructor, participants receive firsthand instruction about how to respond if ever face-to-face with an active shooter. This type of setting also provides immediate access to a professional with a thorough understanding of these tragic incidents.
Supplemented with images and videos, the A.L.I.V.E. Certified Instructor provides a realistic, eye-opening overview of active shooter incidents, enabling participants to effect a more favorable response.
A.L.I.V.E. Active Shooter Survival Training Program Objectives
After engaging in an in-person A.L.I.V.E. presentation, participants will be better able to:
- Understand the causes of these incidents, as well as the mental process an assailant goes through both before and during an active shooter event
- Identify behaviors and red flags that may signal that an active shooter incident is likely to occur
- Develop a survival mindset and enhanced situational awareness, both of which contribute to an effective active shooter response
- Survive an active shooter incident by following the A.L.I.V.E. Active Shooter Survival Plan
Those who receive A.L.I.V.E. Active Shooter Survival Training are also better prepared to help train and instruct other employees – whether those who were unable to attend the initial training session or future staff – ensuring that everyone is on the same page if an active shooter event arises. This alone can increase survival odds by working as a cohesive team in which everyone knows what to do (and does it without the need for discussion) speeds the active shooter response.
