Active Shooter Response

The average police arrival time in the U.S. is between 3-5 minutes.

Our programs focus on our proprietary concept of: “Owning the Gap” this is the key to enhancing your safety during one of these stress-filled dangerous events by making you an active participant in your safety, and not just a hope filled bystander.

DO NOT outsource your safety……OWN IT!!!!

At Charlie Moore Training we are dedicated to training our students on how to dramatically increase their chances of safety and survival in the face of an active shooter event.

Our Active Shooter training programs are designed to equip individuals and organizations with the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to “own” the critical time gaps that exist during these high-stress dangerous situations by empowering our students with the confidence to take and make decisive and effective actions aimed at maximizing survival and minimizing exposure to potential negative impact of these events.

Why Choose Charlie Moore Training for Active Shooter Training Programs?

All-Encompassing Situational Awareness

We focus on two key time gaps which demand “ownership” during an active shooter event.

The first time gap is the time between when the incident begins and when the police arrive and intervene to end the threat.

Sadly, based on some recent tragic events – Parkland and Uvalde come to mind – just having the police “arrive” or “having them there” doesn’t solve the problem; they MUST also do something and with the average police response time in the United States being 3-5 minutes, seconds count and minutes matter. What will you do during this time? This is where we come in: We teach you what you can and should do during this critical timeframe.

The second time gap we focus on is between the event being concluded and EMS being cleared to enter, triage, and treat. Unfortunately, this is also the time when many of the injured, who could have been saved, perish because no one was trained on what to do to save them. This is where we come in: We teach you exactly what to do in this timeframe, as well.

Our programs are developed and designed following not only extensive research into the world’s best practices and painstaking analysis of real-world events, but our training is further backed by the combined 70+ years of real-world experience of our instructional team in dealing with the violence of today’s world.
