A.C.T. ACTIVE SHOOTER COMMAND & CONTROL train the Trainer's course
In the world of public safety, responders are faced with threats to both our lives and the lives of those we've sworn to protect. The need to protect the lives of those we serve while operating in a manner to protect the lives of fellow responders is a problem that can’t be solved with delayed, ineffective, or uncoordinated responses.
Since the Columbine High School massacre first brought the horrific realities of mass violence to the forefront of our minds, many jurisdictions continue to struggle with effective coordination of life-saving operations where a multi-jurisdictional and multi-discipline response is required.
This is not due to lack of effort or expense, as many agencies have implemented training and exercise programs that have dramatically improved individual responder capabilities; what is lacking is a comprehensive program to train and support decision makers in policy development, training protocols development, and the unique inter- and intra-agency command and coordination needs of mass violence incidents. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, what's also lacking are train-the-trainer (TtT) programs to ensure command and coordination training programs that are consistent, host-agency relevant, sustainable, and that provide continuous improvement programs over the long-term.
The solution is ACT, a comprehensive training and exercise program for Active shooter & hostile events response, Command & control Trainer's course. This train-the-trainer program develops a solid operational framework, utilizing your policies and procedures, that enables multiple jurisdictions and multiple disciplines (e.g. police, fire & EMS) to effectively prepare for, respond to and recover from incidents of mass violence.
The emphasis of this course is on testing the plan and supporting those responsible for implementing the plan. This one-day course is divided into two distinct phases. The first being the command and control workshop & table-top exercises followed by the second component of train-the-trainer development.
Participants complete this course with a tested plan, proven solutions to provide upper echelons with policy recommendations, an education in effective training/exercise facilitation AND all the materials needed to conduct their own ACT trainings to further develop and improve command and control capabilities.
