They are also being called upon to respond to scenes with on-going ballistic threats such as active shooter events. This program addresses the types of gunfire events that first responders may find themselves at, what their actions should be to protect themselves, and what to do while waiting for SWAT to arrive on-scene. Also covered is integrating with an armed law enforcement escort team so as to attend to downed victims. This course will begin with a short classroom session and then proceed with many intense practical scenarios.
