According to 2015 Federal Bureau of Investigation statistics, there were 160 “Active Shooter” events in the United States between 2000 and 2013. These events resulted in 486 fatalities, and 557 injured. There has been an average of 11.4 events per year, with increasing frequency.
Studies have also shown that taking the proper steps (When, what and how) along with prior planning can greatly increase chances of survival.
The program, “Run, Hide, Fight” provides simple, basic things which you can do to provide a plan for survival should you ever find yourself in an “Active Shooter” event.
Why is this training needed?
- Half of all Active Shooter events are resolved before the arrival of law enforcement. (Suspect is stopped by the intended victims or suicide.) Average response time from the initial 911 call to the arrival of law enforcement is 14 minutes.
- Knowing what to do, and how to do it will increase the odds for survival
- These events can occur at any time, any at any place. Why not be prepared?
