Participants will examine various techniques and principles that can be used to effectively combat active threats of all types.

During the course, participants will discuss emergency breaching, emergency response protocols, and initial patient management. Additionally, the course consists of a practical exercise that employs various active threat scenarios intended to test the response capabilities of both law enforcement and non-law enforcement personnel. The course will provide participants with the opportunity to enhance their response skills to better improve the chance of survival in the event of an active threat incident.
