  • Citizen Response to Active Shooter

    , $400.00
    An Active Shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area; in most cases, active shooters use firearms(s) and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims.  Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly.  The immediate deployment of specific learned skills and the use of force, is required to stop the shooting and mitigate harm to victims.  Because active shooter situations are often over within 10 to 15 minutes, before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation.
