This course builds off the Threat Suppression course, “Joint Public Safety Response to the Active Shooter”. This course is designed for police, fire, and EMS trainers who intend to train their department in integrated active shooter response. This 500-slide presentation covers a variety of topics related to active shooter response. Included in this presentation are the following topics: (1) overview of a need for a new active shooter response model, (2) active shooter definitions, (3) active shooter event history, (4) types of active shooter events, (5) asymmetric attack tactics, (6) peer recommendations for active shooter response, (7) law enforcement active shooter considerations, (8) fire department response considerations, (9) tactical medical care, (10) equipment needed, (11) rescue task force operations, (12) unified command considerations; (13) 9-1-1 communication considerations, and (14) Tactical Emergency Casualty Care. Upon completion of the lecture, participants will receive the 500-slide presentation*.
Many public safety agencies are currently examining methods by which to implement an integrated active shooter response model. This training is based on 20,000 hours of research and more than 75 large-scale active shooter exercises. This course material has been used by multiple agencies as a basis by which individual agency training is developed. In addition, the creators of this course have also assisted multiple federal agencies with creation of similar active shooter training courses. Multiple Department of Defense organizations have used this course to train hundreds of instructors within the Department of Defense.
During this train-the-trainer course, the presenter will cover each slide and discuss talking points. In addition, the presenter will discuss frequent questions or comments that may arise during the presentation from attendees. It is highly recommended that all attendees for this course attend the “Joint Public Safety Response to the Active Shooter” lecture prior to attending this train-the-trainer session.
This class is only for active public safety members and Department of Defense employees. This class is not available to the general public. This course is a minimum of five hours in length and is taught in conjunction with the four-hour course, "Rescue Task Force Train-the-Trainer".
*At the conclusion of this session, the host agency will be provided two CDs that contain more than 2,500 active shooter studies, articles, presentations, videos, and active shooter audio. The host agency will receive an educational site license to use the 500-slide deck with accompanying training materials. Additional agencies can purchase the training material for a fee.
