Run, Hide, Fight Live Fire Demo/Drill Add On
1 Hour

The live fire demo/drill adds on to any of our active shooter programs. It includes live fire exercises using realistic simulated weapons and “bad guy” role players. Students will learn how to deploy the concepts taught during their active shooter program in an environment that will test their skills and thought processes, challenging them to react faster under stressful situations. Participants will experience simulated scenarios in their own environment (school, workplace, etc) in which they will be forced to think on their feet using the tools and techniques they’ve learned to survive when the bullets start flying. This kind of training is as real as it gets.


These workshops are designed for individuals from the public and private sector. The goal of this training is to establish a baseline reaction as a victim to active shooter incidents, retrain the instinctual reactions, and offer practical solutions to countering the threat. Participants will be required to in good health and to sign a liability and medical waiver prior to participating in this workshop.
