    I could not be more pleased with the Active Shooter Response Training. Words such as exhilarating, empowering, impactful, and mind-changing can be used to describe the training. It is one of those trainings that we all know we will be talking about for years to come. It teaches you that you have options and how to use those options. In addition, the lifesaving skills that are taught can be used in many different scenarios. It is obvious these guys are extremely passionate about what they are teaching. My prayer remains that we will never encounter an active shooter event at any of our locations. However, if that day ever comes, we will survive!

    Our company’s experience with ProActive Response Group was very positive. Chad and Andy shared firsthand experiences which proved to be both compelling and relevant to our topic of situational awareness. Their genuine and professional presentation invoked an interactive discussion among our staff. I gauge the success of a program by the employee responses and I had many employee comments stating these were the best safety speakers we’ve ever had. I highly recommend ProActive Response Group.

    Before this class I felt like I had read and seen enough to keep my family and myself safe. To be honest, I didn’t think this class would show me anything I didn’t already know, or hadn’t already thought of. Boy, was I wrong! This was a wake up call. I not only learned how my actions (or lack of actions) could make me vulnerable, but the instructors also gave me tools to help me be ready to react. So much so, that since the class, I have been using what I learned on a daily basis. With everything you see on the news I know keeping myself and my family completely safe is impossible. But at least now, I know if something does go wrong, I know that I have done all I can to prepare myself to react and hopefully protect those around me.

    We enlisted the team at ProActive Response to conduct active shooter and emergency medical training for our weekday preschool staff at Earle Street Baptist Church. It was definitely money and time well spent! Both Andy and Chad did an excellent job of presenting the material and teaching us the skills we may need to survive in this type of situation. We hope and pray our teachers never need to employ the skills they learned in class but we know they are empowered to do whatever is necessary to protect the children in their care.

    Chad, Andy and Greg conducted a well prepared and structured Active Shooter training. Their coaching style drove home important and critical facts on how to act in certain situations and provided insight and options to consider when involved in an Active Shooter situation. Granted, no one ever wants to be in such a situation, but I’d much rather be prepared and in it than not prepared at all. The ProActive Response Group Team will help you not being helpless and prepare you just in case it happens.

    We live in a different world that we grew up in. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of evil in the world. The best action you can take is to be prepared. Our company brought in ProActive RG to prepare us in the event of an Active Shooter. These guys were were great. They brought decades of knowledge, FBI documented statistics, and hands on experiences. Highly recommend for anyone and any business.

    I participated in a training session yesterday. I have participated in others in other school districts. This was by far the best. Not only did you receive practical information, you were able to practice drills. The medical information was also very valuable.
