The educational staff presentation “Response to the Active Shooter—Studying Yesterday, Preparing for Today and Living Tomorrow”—is a multi-media presentation designed for administrators, teachers and school staff. The information contained in the block of instruction is the most edifying, and up-to-the-minute training available on this topic. The class provides the most progressive life-saving information currently available for educating school staffs in how to recognize, prevent and react to school shooters, and active shooter situations. The presentation is approximately 4 hours in length and can be taught on school premises where employees work. All school jurisdictions have in-depth school safety plans in place which dictate the conduct and actions of employees should an incident occur. However, most jurisdictions make the error of neglecting to give in-depth, instruction that resonates with individual classroom-level teachers. This course provides the audience with a massive amount of subject-related instruction that will enhance their mindset, preparation and training should a tragedy occur in their school. The training and instruction, which the school staff receives, will dovetail seamlessly with present-day law enforcement tactics and training. It stands to reason that a community will strive to achieve a high degree of flawless cooperation between their law enforcement and educational assets should a school shooting event occur. This course of instruction will bridge the gap to ensure optimum performance. An active shooter incident on a school campus is one of the most traumatizing, and shocking events that can affect a community. The “Response to the Active Shooter” presentation will prepare school staffs should this more frequently occurring tragedy happen in your community.
