The definition of an active shooter is “an individual actively engaged in the killing or attempted killing of people in a confined and populated area.” Many recent active shooter events have accentuated the need for a response from not only law enforcement, but those at the incident scene as well.

The FBI said in their 2017 report on Active Shooter incidents, “The enhanced threat posed by active shooters and the swiftness with which active shooter incidents unfold support the importance of preparation by law enforcement and CITIZENS alike”. It is no longer acceptable nor prudent to hide and hope that someone will arrive to save you.

With the average police response in the United States being 3-5 minutes (time of notification to arrival, NOT to action) this is a huge significant time gap where the majority of casualties and injuries occur, the time from the first shot until the threat is stopped. This is the missing training link to make your business, school or group safer and more secure during one of these events, and this is the very time gap that Charlie Moore Training focuses on making our approach not only professional, realistic and effective, but unrivaled in its methodology compared to the vast majority of conventional training.

Our programs are specially designed for both armed and unarmed response protocols based on the unique needs of the client. All programs are hands-on and intended to educate the student with need-to-know from past events (lessons learned) as well as what to expect from possible future events. Our goal is to empower each and every person to be a full participant in their survival during an active shooter event, not just a hopeful bystander. Don’t outsource your personal safety; OWN IT !!!
