Effective methods to deal with and mitigate the risk associated with an active shooter or critical incident.
In the realm of Active Shooter planning, mitigation and response, there has been a tremendous focus placed on law enforcement and first responders: tactics, techniques and procedures for those answering the 911 calls. While this an important aspect of an Active Shooter response plan, it is not an effective and holistic approach. We should focus much more attention to educating and training civilians (or to use a better term; “the persons inside an event who are non law enforcement”) how to react should they be confronted with a hostile person focused on causing “their” death. Just as the populace now knows what to do in the event of a fire alarm; the importance of wearing seat belts; or, to expect the presence of automatic external defibrillators, they must also be taught how to react if confronted by the Active Shooter.
It will continue to be a fact of life that police officers will always be there to pick up the pieces and write reports following an active shooter or critical incident. But as the FBI report shows, the number of Active Shooter incidents in the past decade continues to rise. Therefore, we need to teach people how to survive on their own, until law enforcement and emergency first responders can reach them. CGPGMG, LLC took a huge step in that direction by researching, writing and producing a training video – Superstes – that quickly and effectively educates people on many aspects of Free Action Shooter Prevention Video concepts to implement with subject matter experts for identification and survival. We believe that some instances, injury and death are preventable if only people knew how to identify the warning signs of a potential shooter.
In addition to our education and training efforts, we have also teamed with Cold Fire to design and produce active shooter kits for both civilian and law enforcement use. These kits contain state-of-the-art first aid items, innovative door jams, communication devices and other items tailored to helping those caught in the crossfire of one of these horrific events.
CGPGMG, LLC does not discuss political issues such as gun control, because we do not believe that human nature’s “Operating System 1.0” has changed in thousands of years. A deranged person using a bomb committed the largest, single school killing in the 20th Century. In other words, we focus on human behavior instead of the instrumentalities by which bad people commit their crimes. Therefore, to us, it is much more important to train people on how to spot potential threats and how to react should a physical threat arise no matter the situation. Survival is more than just instinctive, it needs to be honed and trained for through behavioral modification suggestive messages.
