“Defensive Reaction Team Training”
If your organization has security issues such as an active shooter concerns, Countering Violent Extremism (CVE), or workplace violence – then this is the training for you! In many cases, there is no pattern or method to the selection of victims by an active shooter, and these situations are by their very nature unpredictable and evolve quickly. Outside Law Enforcement response may be too late. Even if you already have a security team/defensive reaction team, staffed with former law enforcement officers, military personnel or CCW holders, have they worked together with live fire tactics as a team? Are they practicing these movement, engagement and communication skills routinely? Have they been trained to make judgment decisions in an adrenalin state of mind, with life or death consequences? Are they current in “Judgment Situation” training? Have they trained using realistic live fire judgment simulators? What are their firearms qualifications? Does your organization incorporate “Less Lethal” options? These and many more questions must be addressed in any plan your group develops; and we can help you put that plan in place! Our DRT Training provides the knowledge, and skills necessary to function as a team, and the exposure to live fire team tactics while doing it. Your team will receive extensive firearms and tactics training. Proper training is crucial for your DRT members to be able to support each other to stop the threat, while minimizing potential injuries to themselves and to those they are supposed to protect.
