On-Site Active Shooter and Drills


With the number of shooting incidents on the rise in this Country and the escalation of people's awareness of the problem, it's the perfect time to increase your company's knowledge of what to do and not to do if a shooter happens to enter your environment. This service includes an on-site training for employees within the company who wish to learn how to be prepared for such an incident. Then Phoenix Training Group can coordinate an on-site Active Shooter Drill to be held at your company to allow your staff to experience this dynamic and impactful event safely without a real incident occurring so that they will be ready if it ever happens to them.

Using interactive videos, real-life examples of incidents and behavioral recognition techniques, this class will teach your staff the warning signs, what to and not do when faced with a real shooting incident, how to save themselves and others and what to do when law enforcement arrives. By using the “Run, Hide, Fight” methodology, (Sometimes known as “Secure, Preserve, Fight” for healthcare) participants will have a firm grasp on how to handle themselves if a violent incident of this magnitude ever does become real within their workplace. Then, in conjunction with the company's cooperation and local law enforcement to stand by to keep the environment safe, Phoenix Training Group will provide a mock Shooter Drill, using an actor intruder to enter the facility while testing both the facility's protocols and the employee's reactions to the incident. During the incident, several cameras will capture the entire drill, one worn by the shooter and the others following the shooter, so that afterward, the footage can be used for forensic review in understanding how the drill went and where the strengths and deficits are, among the employees or facility, as a learning tool for positive change and allowing for a much better reaction if ever a real person enters the facility with a gun.

As an added element, your organization can even train together with Phoenix Group, to learn ways to intercept and contain the shooter, as practice if an active shooter ever does breach the facility and your employees must choose to fight when forced to do so. Once trained, a team of able-bodied, trained employees will have the opportunity to actually take down the mock shooter during the drill. Every time a facility has chosen to accept this take down opportunity and the team encounters the mock shooter, they have been able to apprehend and contain the mock shooter, rendering them weaponless and unable to continue. This portion is not for everyone, but for those organizations who have chosen to utilize this part of the drill, the facility and employees report a high level of capability, confidence and empowerment after the exercise has completed.
