NCBRT-LSU and DHS are presenting a pilot course PER-375 – Surviving an Active Shooter: Run. Hide. Fight at the Charles Doyle Convention Center 2010 5th Avenue, Texas City on 22 and 23 January, 2019.
This is a pilot offering for this one day course. We are offering this course on two consecutive days with the first day being dedicated more to School campuses throughout the region. The second day would focus more on Hospitals, Office Buildings, and Government Buildings in addition to Schools.
All registrants are required to have a FEMA Student Identification Number (SID). Please bring to the class as required for registration with NCBRT and the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC). If you do not have a FEMA SID, please go to: https://cdp.dhs.gov/femasid
This course aims to train non-traditional first responders, including civilian employees, students, faculty, staff, patrons, and any other person who lives, works, or visits any location where an active shooter incident may occur. The course focuses on the various components of the Run. Hide. Fight. Response paradigm, which is widely accepted and taught as one of the primary response paradigms regarding active shooter incidents. Participants will learn about the ways in which the Run. Hide. Fight. Response paradigm can be applied in any active shooter incident, regardless of the location or other factors involved.
During the course, participants will discuss the three primary tenets of the response paradigm, evaluate how the paradigm can be incorporated into existing building emergency action plans, complete a practical exercise in which they demonstrate the response options, and become familiar with notable case studies in which the response options were either implemented or could have been implemented to prevent or mitigate the attack. The course includes lecture, group discussion, and practical application of course material, and seeks to prepare the target audience for an active shooter incident by providing them with plausible and effective response options.
