Apex Officer is providing employers and employees with the opportunity to experience the newest technological revelation in training: virtual reality. Businesses are taking advantage of virtual reality technology such as Apex Officer's VR Active Shooter Preparedness program to prepare their employees for thousands of different active shooter situations in both a safe and controlled environment.
"Apex Officer's VR active shooter preparedness training program is a game-changer for training technology and is transforming the face of active shooter preparedness training," said Chase Dittmer, chairman, and CEO of Apex Officer.
"Outdated training methods and technology are preventing small, medium, and large businesses from training effectively and efficiently. Our training platform was designed in the field with police officers and first responders to save time, money and, most importantly, save the lives of law enforcement officers and the civilians they have sworn to protect."
An Active Shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area; in most cases, active shooters use firearms(s) and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims.
Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the shooting and mitigate harm to victims. Active shooter situations are often over within 10 to 15 minutes before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation.
"The threat of indiscriminate gun violence hasn't diminished. That's why active shooter preparedness training efforts continue to escalate across the country," said Chase Dittmer, chairman and CEO of Apex Officer. "The goal of this program is to help reduce the number of victims by equipping people with the latest life-saving, virtual reality, active shooter preparedness training."
In the midst of the chaos, anyone can play an integral role in mitigating the impacts of an active shooter incident. Apex Officer aims to enhance preparedness through a "whole community" training approach by providing products, tools, and resources to help students, faculty, employees, first responders and more prepare for and respond to an active shooter incident.
The Apex Officer virtual reality training system is capable of simulating an infinite number of different active shooter training scenarios and can prepare businesses and their employees on how to react to various active shooter and active threat situations. Apex Officer's training simulators utilize virtual reality technology and offer an immersive 360-degree view and include peripheral vision and training tools that closely match those used in the field to enhance the transferability of the training to real-life scenarios.
"As the variety and type of threats to businesses and citizens alike continue to grow, many business owners are looking towards innovative technology to better train their personnel in a safe and cost-effective manner," said Chase Dittmer. "Unlike competing active shooter training programs, Apex Officer's VR active shooter preparedness training simulator provides a truly immersive, fully integrated, and real virtual reality experience."
