RUN, HIDE, FIGHT – Active Shooter Training
We will be teaming up with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office to host a presentation of Run, Hide, Fight. This presentation will educate and empower people against active shooter situations or other violent threats. The program will discuss the following:
Offer strategies to prevent and prepare for a potential Active Shooter incident
Provide options to enhance survival when confronted with an Active Shooter
Describe actions needed to safely interact with the responding police officers
An active shooter is defined as an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a populated area. While the majority of incidents involve the use of firearms, the term “active shooter” may also apply to an individual armed with any other type of weapon (e.g., firearm, knife, explosives, etc.) and who poses an active threat.
Most have no regard for their own safety or capture. They are often on the move and will accept random victims of opportunity while searching for intended victims or until stopped by law enforcement, suicide, or other intervention. Common motives include anger, revenge, ideology, and untreated mental illness. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly.
Law Enforcement personnel will act swiftly with a primary duty to protect innocent life by focusing their efforts on finding and neutralizing the active shooter(s). However, because most incidents last only 10 to 15 minutes, individuals at the scene must be prepared to deal with the situation until law enforcement personnel arrive.
