Active Shooter Lockdown Drills are extremely efficient—for the shooter.
Just think about it– during a school lockdown, you’re assembling all kids in one space, and more than likely that space is in the same place for most classrooms.
As the threat evolves, so must we. We can no longer rely on “Lockdown” alone, there is so much more than can be done.
For one, the lockdown response is not situationally dependent. Lockdown drills are great at teaching caregivers to follow ONE strategy, but that strategy may not apply to every situation.
For instance, most schools tell teachers to lock their doors and sit quietly until helps arrives, but developing a plan like this is limited thinking that can cause serious problems later.
With emphasis being placed on training and preparation for an Active Shooter Event (ASE), BSR focused on developing an all-encompassing program that gives workplace management, school resource officers, school faculty, and religious leadership the tools necessary to increase their chances of survivability when such a violent incident were to occur. Granted, an active shooter drill would most likely traumatize children, but administrators, teachers, students and first responders can adequately prepare for these situations by running a simulation.
At BSR, you will learn the difference between being proactive vs. passive, thus instilling that survival mindset, and gaining the much needed confidence to make a decision and act upon it. We do it in a way that is practical, realistic, and applicable in its simplest form. That way, you leave our facility informed and prepared for the unexpected.
