By discussing the different mental strategies, as well as response tactics, individuals will be better prepared to not only ACT, but REACT during an active shooter event. This discussion will cover associated behaviors, thoughts, and feelings, which may be indicators that someone is disgruntled at their job, in their personal life, or with society. Triggering events that may cause individuals to become an active shooter will also be discussed, along with active shooter statistics, trends, real incidents and why it is vitally important for individuals to have a plan. Audio and video clips are utilized to get everyone into the mindset of what may occur during an active shooter situation and realistically feel involved. Includes Q&A.
