The prevalence of active shooter situations in the workplace has seen a disconcerting increase in recent years. These distressing incidents, once considered improbable within work environments, have sadly become an alarming reality. News reports continue to remind us that no workplace or industry is immune to such acts of violence. And this sobering trend has prompted companies of all sizes to prioritize employee safety by implementing comprehensive training programs aimed at equipping individuals with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate and survive active shooter events.
But while traditional survival training methods, including the widely-known run, hide, fight strategy advocated by the FBI, have been widely disseminated, they may not provide the most effective approach to ensure survival in active shooter situations. These methods, while offering some guidance, often oversimplify the complexities and realities of high-stress scenarios. So to better prepare employees, a more comprehensive, adaptable, and practical training approach is essential to address the nuanced challenges presented by active shooter incidents.
So what’s the answer?
On the show today is Michael Julian, creator of the A.L.I.V.E. Active Shooter Survival Training Program and President of MPS Security & Protection. During our discussion, he shares his unique method for surviving active shooter situations. Additionally, Michael provides insights on how security leaders can enhance the effectiveness of their training sessions and highlight common pitfalls that companies often encounter when teaching survival training to their employees.
