Active Shooter Prevention Experts Official Response to FBI Report

Recently, in Active Shooter planning, mitigation and response, there has been a 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 is 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 continue to rise.  Therefore, we need to teach people how to survive on their own, until law enforcement and emergency first responders can reach them.  When Chris Grollnek took the time to write and direct a free PSA Active Shooter Prevention training video for schools and businesses, it quickly became the standard for effective education. In some, if not most instances, injury and death are preventable if people know how to identify the warning signs of a potential shooter.

CGPGMG, LLC does not discuss political issues, because we do not believe human nature’s operating system has evolved in thousands of years where violence is concerned.  The largest, single school killing in the 20th Century was committed by a deranged person using a bomb.  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 and suggestive messaging.
