Mindset impacts actions.
It is impossible to prepare for something you do not believe will ever happen. Not only will you not be prepared to respond, you won't be prepared to prevent it. Changing our mindset it the first step to being prepared.
Why it's important
The average active threat incident is 12.5 minutes, though some are over in less than 2. There can be as much as a 4-6 minute delay before calls are placed to 911. The average response time for law enforcement to an active threat incident once dispatch has relayed the information is 15-18 minutes. That makes you the real first responder. Make sure to train to respond so that you can increase your chances of survival.
Meet the instructor
Nikki Burgett has spent almost a decade teaching active threat prevention and response. She holds instructor certifications from the Federal Law Enforcement Education and Training Center (FLETC), as well as from the Department of State. She has taught Multiple Assault Counter-Terrorism Action Capabilities (MACTAC), Response to Active Shooter (RASI), as well as Active Shooter created by the Department of Homeland Security. In addition to teaching the topic, she has taken countless courses for both law enforcement and civilians.
Her background in behavioral science has shown her that without the right mindset, training tactics does little good and this is where many civilian courses have failed. Her goal with this course is to provide civilians with the tools to change their mindset so they are capable of planning for, preventing if possible and responding to when necessary an active threat event.
I would take this coarse at least 2 more times!! This like a great book that you can not put down! You want to read it again because you get one more new thought or realization on how important it is to train!!
"Well presented material that makes the threat easy to understand. I appreciate the explanation of where statistics come from and the personal example of "playing the what-if game".
