Active Shooter Awareness Training
This is a class taught by SROs trained in Active Shooter Response and will be held in a school setting. There will be a classroom lecture and hands on training with simunition equipment. Attendees will be equipped with the proper safety attire and equipment needed to safely perform the training scenarios. Scenarios will place the administrator/SRO into the stressful duty of the responding officer responding to an active shooter and will allow you to see the importance of training preparation and the split second decisions to shoot or don’t shoot.
Refreshments and a scheduled working lunch will be provided at the training location on those days. Classes are limited to 20 students on each day and classes will be held from 8:30 AM-12:00 PM dates are TBA. Class will require participants to engage in physical activity. Attendees will be placed into classes on a first come first served basis. Classes will be taught by certified trainers in active shooter response.
