Small Businesses Offered On-site Survival Training for Active Shooting Incidents
Precision Risk Management Group (PRMG), a Michigan-based security firm, has developed a course which teaches business owners and their employees how to respond during an active shooter incident in the workplace.
Aug. 30, 2012 - PRLog -- SAGINAW, MI –- The two-hour course, conducted on client premises, details the actions each employee can take should a gunman enter their place of business.
Grady Emmons, president of PRMG, says, “The urgent need for this course has, unfortunately, been proven by the recent shootings in Colorado and Wisconsin. Until now, a course like this has only been available to law enforcement, institutions and larger corporations. I feel it’s just as important to teach small businesses how to prepare for an active shooter incident.”
The Active Shooter Survival Course includes customized classroom style instruction and discussion, as well as an active shooter workshop where Emmons and his team take employees through a role-play active shooter exercise in their office. “Just like with a fire drill, planning ahead for an incident like this is key,” says Emmons. “Shootings like these take place in a matter of just a few minutes, so the ability to react quickly and knowledgeably is crucial.”
Emmons explains that the focus of the course is on survival, and that it is not the responsibility of employees to eliminate the threat. “An active shooter incident is no place for heroics,” he says. “The goal is to get to safety and avoid a confrontation at all costs. Taking on a shooter is a last resort, and is best left to law enforcement.”
