“Active threats and/or shooters are a reality of our society, and whether it be at
work, school, or in any public place, having the knowledge to pull from can make the difference. I highly recommend Charlie for Active Threat training. He does a great job at making a tough topic easier to understand and provides a healthy dose of reality without terrifying the audience.”
