Active Shooter/Terrorist Response

A terrorist attack close to home underscores the potential threat we face from ‘lone wolf’ or, as we are now seeing all too often, a small number of individuals committing terrorist acts in our local communities.

This class is designed to help you develop skills to enable you to fight back and increase your chances of surviving in the event of an active shooter/terrorist response scenario. All it takes is one person who is trained and willing to respond to defeat these attackers. With such training and the proper mindset you can respond and make a difference, protecting yourself and saving an untold number of lives.
