New Course Highlight: Active Shooter

Posted by Rachael Ballard Filed under: Courses

PublicSchoolWORKS has added two active shooter training courses to its catalog: Active Shooter Response – Lockdown, Barricade, Escape and Active Shooter Response – Lockdown, Barricade, Escape, Counter Attack.

Both courses teach employees to identify when it is safest to secure or barricade a classroom, as well as when it is appropriate to hide and/or evacuate in the event of an active shooter situation. The courses also instruct staff how to interact with law enforcement officials during and after active shooter situations so they do not hinder law enforcement efforts

In addition to this information, the Counter Attack course helps staff understand when it is best to flee in a manner that will save the most lives such as running in a zigzag pattern and spreading out and, as a last resort, using physical aggression to scare off or surprise and overpower the shooter.
