Active Shooter Preparedness
Personal safely has always been one of the key goals of Point Blank Range. In response to recent well-publicized horrific events in our country and abroad, PBR is offering an Active Shooter Preparedness class. The ASP course provides students with the background information and mindset to prepare to respond to an active shooter situation. Students will obtain knowledge and skills that will help reduce panic and improve survivability by incorporating an appropriate RUN, HIDE, FIGHT response.
An “Active Shooter” is an individual or small group of individuals actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area by any means including but not limited to firearms (most frequently used), bladed weapons, vehicles, or any tool that in the circumstance in which it is used constitutes deadly physical force. Most active shooter situations are unpredictable, evolve quickly, and are over within minutes. To counter an Active Shooter situation immediate response is necessary. This requires preparation.
The Active Shooter Preparedness (ASP) course provides students with the information and mindset needed to prepare to respond to an active shooter situation. ASP is designed for groups and individuals seeking to be more prepared at work, at home, and out in public.
Some information that will be covered:
- Be ready to take immediate action when confronted with an active shooter situation
- Recognize potential workplace and public event violence indicators
- Describe actions to take to prevent and prepare for potential active shooter incidents
- Recognize when to RUN / HIDE / FIGHT
- Know how to work with responding law enforcement officials
Not all the scenarios and situations discussed here will be applicable at every location for every student. However, this course will ready the student to develop or enhance his or her own location-specific plans and procedures.
