    Definition of an Active Shooter:
    An active shooter incident is defined by U.S. government agencies as “an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area.”

    Side Note 1: It would also include multiple shooters and is not only limited to firearms.

    Types of Active Shooters: (U.S. Homeland Security)

    1. Workplace/school
    2. Criminal
    3. Ideological (Terrorists)

    Side Note 2: It could also be a hybrid type of Active Shooter as we witnessed in San Bernardino County California, the terrorist committed the shootings against his coworkers.

    What to do when confronted with an Active Shooter / Threat:
    Run, Hide, Fight! Many consultants and trainers are for and against this concept for various reasons. Mostly monetary. I myself am a big advocate of this training video. It single handedly is the most effective training video in regards to Active Shooters / Active Threats. If you or your organization is on a shoe string budget, this is what you need to watch and study to increase your survivability. Below is the link to the video. I will also expound on each topic so you can understand their importance and why we would do this.

    Run, Hide, Fight Video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VcSwejU2D0

    Run: Why run? Running gives you time and options. It gives you a chance to survive. It is extremely difficult for a shooter to strike a moving target , period. Believe me from experience. Just like birds scatter right away when you approach them. We need to do the same, move and run fast. Remember when you were a kid playing dodge ball, did you just let your opponent nail you with the ball? Of course not. You moved or ran away to a different location. Make the bad guy work a little bit if they choose to make you a victim. The below link shows the Paris France Terrorist Attack / Active Shooters. Take note how some of the people who ran away survived. Additionally, firearms do malfunction, capitalize on this and save your life. At times luck does come into the equation. It’s important to take advantage of this.

    Watch the below link.

    Hide: We are all pretty good at this from playing hide and seek. We are hiding to avoid detection from the bad guy. If we avoid detection, we survive. Additional tips include, locking any doors if you’re in a room, barricade the door if time permits, turn off the lights, maybe close some blinds, silence cell phones and remain quiet. Don’t answer the door or move until rescued by police or the proper authority. Start to formulate a plan if you do have to fight.

    Fight: If you cannot run or hide, as a last resort, fight. This is very difficult for many people, none of us signed up to be instant security or police officers at work, school or in public. The fact of the matter is that you have an immediate life or death problem. You owe it to your families to give it your best shot and not be a victim. You owe it to all of those who have died before us in previous active shooter incidents to fight. Even better, if multiple people around you are fighting the bad guy this increases all of your chances of surviving. Be creative, use whatever object can make

    the perfect weapon to take the bad guy down or out of commission. It can be done!!!! Look at what those American Servicemen accomplished in France. They prevented multiple casualties and displayed to the rest of the world why America is and always will be a great country.

    Case Study # 3:

    Executive Protection detail for a Chief Executive Officer of a large manufacturing company. As the company’s profits were staggering and much needed change was inevitable, the next logical progression was to explore company layoff’s. As the talk amongst employees facing a potential layoff spread throughout the office, a specific employee began making threats to the Chief Executive of the company. The threats initially began online with small hints and clues that an attack on the company and management could become possible. The said employee began talking to co workers that he owned several firearms including an AK47 assault rifle. Some employees didn’t take their colleague to seriously and just laughed it off. One employee became frightened and told her superior. As this information finally made its way up to company leaders, they quickly decided the need for some type security countermeasures.

    I started the detail remaining with the CEO indefinitely. Our company began our due diligence on the target by conducting several background checks. We learned the person in question did in fact own the AK47, so this led us to believe he was somewhat capable of an attack. We positioned 2 of our private detectives on the target to follow all of his movements. The subject continued posting harmful rhetoric online where it was quasi criminal in nature. We continued around the clock executive protection for the CEO and tracking the targets movements. We installed our executive protection / security deluxe package of layered security technology at the business. This was designed to detect a firearm from as far away from the facility as possible so there was no possible way for an intruder or the subject to launch an active shooter type attack. With all of our proactive measures in place, our company gave our client a strong piece of mind to the executives and other employees. As time went on the employee finally tallied up enough sick days, poor performance ratings, insubordination etc… to get fired. It was quite a relief for the company. We decided to scale back on security gradually by removing our surveillance teams. We kept in place the executive protection detail for several months until the company relocated its business to one of the southern states. We traveled with them and provided our security consulting services on their new facility to include a layered security technology system, integrated with a reputable contract security company. Additionally, we trained all of the company on our Active Shooter Consulting services to include our STAIR concept of situational threat assessment indicator rating to enhance spotting potential workplace violence issues.

    At Secure Options Consulting we are very passionate about our School Safety and Security Consulting. According to our government, schools make up approximately 29% of the Active Shooter Incidents across the country. The need for qualified and technically competent security consulting services are a must.

    Our company is at the forefront of the school security consulting business. Our team has consulted and trained numerous police officers / SWAT, school security personnel, educators, school administrators and others in the full spectrum of school violence. Additionally, some team members have had the experience of being engaged in real world active shooter / hostage rescue incidents which gives us great insight and experience on response measures. We’ve introduced cutting edge and principle based tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP’s) to law enforcement and school personnel for these unfortunate incidents.

    After analyzing active shooter incidents since the Columbine High School tragedy, we developed a reality / principle based program to assist schools and government agencies dealing with these incidents. We’ve developed Proactive School Active-Shooter Training. (PSAT) This methodology encompasses every basis from preventative measures, such as conducting a physical security survey of the school, to additional proactive measures a school can take to safe guard their students and employees. PSAT then evolves into proven counter measures of the active shooter cycle and lastly it incorporates the training component of the program. The training component is where we incorporate all of the skill sets and principles together so administrators and school staff can fully understand the complexity of the incident.

    Feel free to contact us regarding any of your School Safety and Security needs as well as any questions about our PSAT program.
