Stay Sharp Off Duty With Active Shooter Courses
Feb 14th 2019
Why Is It Important To Stay Sharp Off Duty?
The last thing anyone thinks of is a routine errand to the grocery store turning into a life-or-death situation. Sadly, active shooter situations have been on the rise since 2000, according to the FBI. Active shooter incidents are occurring in businesses, schools and universities, government and health care facilities, and public spaces. And although the clock may say you’re off-duty, the impact of these situations can be reduced through action. With continued, specialized gun training courses taught by the experts at Six Maritime, you can train for the unexpected.
Active Shooter Courses Keep Skills Refined
Six Maritime’s tactical training courses provide the perfect opportunity to maintain or sharpen your skills for an active shooter situation. While off duty, you can refine your skill set and even add new tactics to your repertoire. The skills you take away from a training course can prove necessary at any time and you’ll be reassured to know your skills are sharp.
Situational awareness is critical when there's an active shooter. It's a core component of any high-quality, tactical training and the backbone of decision making. Any situation can change in a split second, and understanding the variables behind the situational shift helps you gain the upper hand.
Accurately Predicting Next Actions
Accurately predicting the next actions of the shooter before they happen is key to mitigating injury and loss of life. The sooner the situation ends and is controlled, the sooner victims can receive appropriate medical attention.
Communicating With Responding Law Enforcement
Knowing how to properly communicate with responding law enforcement is important to keep yourself safe. Active shooter courses provide the opportunity to learn or refresh an appropriate communication strategy.
