  • Train your Brain - You are only as good as your last training. It is not instinctual to respond.
  • Situational Awareness - An explanation of how important it is to know your surroundings.
  • Jesse Lewis Story (Sandy Hook) Active Shooter Simulation - When given the opportunity...RUN! The audience will be warned that an active shooter situation is about to occur. A "shooter" will enter the room fire several simulated shots while playing the role of a shooter. PURPOSE: to train your brain you must Hear, See and Feel what it is like to be in this situation. OUTCOME: The audience will begin to realize that without a predetermined plan the brain will tell the body to "freeze".
  • Simulation (Break Down) - Instructor and audience will discuss what they saw, heard, smelt, felt.
  • Calling 911 - An audience member will be asked to simulate a call to 911. He/she will be asked identify their location, provide information on what they saw, and describe the shooter (the audience will assist). PURPOSE: The audience will have different accounts of what they saw and heard. This is how the brain works in the time of a crisis.
  • RUN - HIDE - FIGHT - Complete explanation of how to run, hide, and fight.
  • Gun 101 - The instructor will explain to the audience how a gun works. NOTE: This is a survival skill.
  • Lockdown - A breakdown of what a "true" lockdown is and when it should happen.
  • Police Response - A quick demonstration of the Police arrival to an Active Shooter scenario. 
  • Sarah Story - A story about a young girl who saved 6 children.
  • Closing Remarks - Emphasis on paying attention to your surroundings and identifying the verbal and non-verbal cues of an Active Shooter. You can...RUN- HIDE-FIGHT!!

NOTE: This training is unique in that there is a live simulation of an Active Shooter. The simulation allows the audience members to:

  1. Hear what a gun sounds like being fired at proximity.
  2. Smell the aftermath of a weapon being fired.
  3. See the interaction of those around them.
  4. Feel the anxiety of a traumatic situation.

This simulation allows the audience members to "train their brain" for proper response if ever involved in an Active Shooter scenario and to develop an active shooter plan for their organization. 

Of course, the guns used in the simulation ARE NOT REAL, but provide for a REALISTIC atmosphere.
