According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, an active shooter is “an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area.” A Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) study identified 200 active shooter incidents in the U.S. from 2000–2015 that killed or wounded a total of 1,274 people. Almost half (44%) of all incidents occurred in areas of commerce. And, over 60% of incidents ended before law enforcement arrived. To help minimize the impact of a shooting, individuals must take steps to plan and prepare.
This introductory active shooter response course is designed to help learners respond appropriately in an active shooter/active threat situation.
