Best Safety Training Provider - 2018
Many people were taught to simply hide under a desk or huddle in the back of the room when there is an armed intruder in the building. Some programs even encourage people to fight a gunman. Reality tells us we don't rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training. We have all been programmed at a young age on how we react to most hazards, passively hide under a desk. We have learned time and time again, this passive response is not effective for active threats.
Lockdown International's Active Survival: ABC'S Active Threat Response Plan training is an international award-winning course designed to provide and empower individuals with option-based survival skills to stay alive until law enforcement arrives, and ultimately survive any violent incident. This plan can be easily implemented into your organization's Emergency Operation/Action Plan. These are skills that translate to a workplace, school, healthcare facility, place of worship, shopping mall or any other location in which an active threat can be a danger.
Active Survival will guide you through what we have learned, what we are doing now, and what we can do moving forward. We discuss lessons learned from prior mass casualty incidents based on the actions of the citizens and first responders involved. This training will help you identify the physiological changes to your body that occur under stress, and how to fight through them. The ABC'S Active Threat Response Plan walks you through each of your survival options in order for you to make the best decision possible.
