What You Need To Know

Avoid Where Possible, Respond When Necessary

It is important to understand that in the event of an active shooter, YOU will be the true First Responder! Our active assailant training is uniquely designed to help people feel empowered to take appropriate and decisive action during a life-threatening situation. What sets our programs apart from other active shooter training classes is that we put protecting you and your people first. While most training programs use fear tactics and serve only to further unnerve trainees, we take an approach that helps build confidence and morale. Self-defense and the defense of others is an essential skill in almost any situation, so our goal is to give people the depth of knowledge that makes them feel safe during their workday and in their personal lives. Our blend of live and online active shooter training programs makes it easy for organizations to train their employees annually and upon hiring, ensuring that every person receives the protection they deserve. 

Expertise, Empathy, Sustainability

At Trident Shield, we offer professional safety training programs for a variety of industries, as we know different clients have varying needs and limitations.

Life-Saving Active Shooter Training

Our training is built around four main actions that can help you prevent or survive an active shooter situation:

  1. Prepare: Proper preparation is an essential component of your active shooter plan and one that is often overlooked. Our active shooter emergency response seminars will provide you with methods to prevent an active shooter situation from taking place, as well as items to prepare once an attack as begun. Important concepts such as situational awareness, indicator behaviors, and active planning are all included in learning how to be prepared for an active shooter in the workplace. 
  2. Escape: Escaping may seem like a straight-forward concept, but it is actually much more complicated than simply “run”. How you escape will be influenced by factors such as the type of weapon, the environment you are in, available items that can provide cover, and more.  Equally important is to learn how to assess if escaping is even a safe and available response option for you.   
  3. Hide: If escaping isn’t currently an option for you or the people around you, your next course of action is to find a place to safely hide from the threat. Hiding is so much more than sitting under a desk or stacking chairs against the door! Our course will teach you how to properly barricade during a life-threatening situation so that you can wait for an opportunity to escape or stop the attacker.
  4. Defend: During an active shooter situation, you might think you have a slim chance of standing up to someone with a firearm, but there are ways you can gain the advantage during this type of attack and even neutralize the attacker. Trident Shield instructors will provide you and your employees with information about how to defend yourself and others from an attacker if the need arises. You can use the tactics we'll teach you to ambush and even disarm the assailant, saving as many lives as possible.

Learn How to Prepare For and Survive an Active Shooter

If you’re untrained and have little experience with assailant situations, you’ll probably have a hard time reacting in a productive way when the time comes.  Unlike most other programs that tell you only what to do, our active assailant readiness training will provide you with the level of detail to know exactly how to perform the response options.  This distinction can make all the difference when it comes time to save your life.  While there’s usually some uncertainty surrounding active shooter situations, having the training and making the suggested preparations will give you and the others in your workplace an advantage over the attacker.

At Trident Shield, we're concerned with more than just training your team and going our separate ways — we care deeply about building relationships with our clients and helping you keep your people safe. Whether you are a company of 10 or 10,000, it is our mission and passion to work with you to make sure all your security needs are met.

Online Active Shooter Safety Training

Online Training

While in-person training is the ideal option for many companies, some might feel that they don't have the flexibility to participate in a live session. That’s why we also have workplace violence online training for leaders, employees, and individuals who would rather train on their own time at their own pace. Our online options are interactive, convenient and easy to understand, which means participants can get all the necessary information without the need for a live instructor.

As an often more affordable and sustainable option than group training, this online class for active shooter situations is made up text, photos, videos, interactive components, and quizzes to make the learning experience both valuable and engaging. You can receive the same invaluable training content as our live presentation without interrupting your business operations.

Another benefit of partnering with us is that we offer personalized online safety courses to include your organization’s specific information, such as logos, imagery, and policies.  Additionally, certain training packages provide our clients with unlimited employee turnover, meaning that any replacement hires will have access to the training without any extra cost to your organization for the life of your contract. Contact us for more information and to learn if you qualify for this benefit!
