In an active shooter situation, the individual is actively engaged in killing and or attempting to kill as many people as they can, as quickly as they can. In most cases, active shooters use firearms, home-made bombs, or other lethal devices to injure and maim as many people as they can. Typically, there is no method or pattern in their selection of victims and these situations evolve quickly and are unpredictable.
Many victims have numerous ways to defend themselves but have not been properly trained on what to do in these types of situations. Furthermore, most employers could have helped prevent and prepare for potential active killer (shooter) situations by providing their employees with simple training offered by our certified ALiCE instructors. In this course, participants will learn how to protect themselves, escape from harm, and fight back against an active killer if need be and much, much more.
