"Surviving in Public With Situational Awareness Training" Quarterly Power Luncheon 3.29.18
San Bernardino, California … Dallas, Texas … Orlando, Florida … Fort Lauderdale Airport … Alexandria, Virginia … Aurora, Colorado … Las Vegas, Nevada … Sutherland Springs, Texas
Active shooter incidents in the United States continue to rise in frequency, with FBI statistics showing the highest average of incidents ever in a two-year period. According to the FBI, 2014 and 2015 each saw 20 active shooter incidents. That’s more than any two-year average in the past 16 years, and nearly six times as many as the period between 2000 and 2001, the starting point for the FBI’s review.
Thankfully, mass shootings do not occur often although they do happen with more frequency than most people realize. However, with good planning, preparation and assessment you can be more responsive to yourself and others regardless of whether you are caught in a mass violence incident or any other emergency scenario. Our law enforcement community has to make split second decisions that defense attorneys and the public could take years to assess, analyze and pick apart. Since police and military do not have the luxury of taking extra time in violent or disaster scenarios, much more emphasis is put on training and preparation by undergoing drills and scenarios so that they react instinctively and almost subconsciously, utilizing training and experience to respond effectively and successfully.
The goal of the March Luncheon Series is to share some of our law enforcement’s basic components of situational awareness training so you can increase the likelihood you will survive in a mass shooting or similar violent event.
