Event description

Description

Having to face an armed individual with bad intentions is every person’s worst nightmare. You can’t stop crazy or evil, you can only respond to it. The aggressor’s actions are not your fault; failure to plan and to train, is. All citizens can help prevent and prepare for potential active threat situations. Preparation can reduce the risk of one of these incidents and, if one occurs, your actions can mitigate or reduce the number of potential victims. The Active Threat Citizen Defense course (A.T.C.D.) aims to enhance preparedness for citizens to “rise to the occasion” instead of “settling to the level of their training” and doing nothing.

This teaching will show you how to:

  • Recognize hostile situations and attempt to diffuse them.

  • Realize how items in your area can be utilized to defend yourself and save your life.

  • Understand how the body reacts during stressful situations.

  • Perform a “no-skills” needed maneuver to combat a gunman.

    Test your newly acquired survival skills during our hands-on, interactive, scenario-based training. In a time where violence is becoming more common, we can no longer stand by and hope this never happens to us. Attaining the Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities to respond and confront an active threat is not paranoia, its preparedness.
