Every year, children leave the security of their family and embark on a new journey at a college or university where their parents trust that they will be protected from horrible acts of violence.
That is not the case.
History has proven time and time again that colleges and universities are vulnerable places for campus shootings and mass-murder attempts.
The FBI case study of active shooter incidents in the United States between 2000-2013 indicated that the highest death tolls among the 160 incidents occurred at colleges and universities such as Virginia Tech. During this incident at Virginia Tech, 32 people were killed and 17 people were injured. University shootings are not new to this country. Charles Whitman gunned down 16 students and injured 32 from atop a clock tower at the University of Texas on August 1, 1966.
With the prevalence of college shootings over at least 5 decades the need arises for a specific active shooter training catering to the specific needs of college and university campuses.
What Makes Our Active Shooter Training Program For Schools Outstanding?
Traditionally, in the case of primary schools, Guardian Defense would only focus our active shooter training on the faculty and staff, but in this case all parties are considered matured participants that are capable of making critical decisions during an emergency. Due to the constant free flowing and open environment on campus it would serve more purpose to provide active shooter training to college students by providing them with a comprehensive training video or online module. On the other hand, professors and staff should be given hands on training on what to do in case an active shooter incident occurs.
Guardian Defense has the active shooter training for colleges and universities to serve all the needs a college or university would require when it comes to planning, preparing and practicing for an active shooter situation.
