Anderson Active Shooter Response

Training in California

If an active shooter event occurred in California,

would you be prepared?

Mass shootings and other acts of violence are not limited to big cities. Unfortunately, they also happen in small, relatively safe towns like California. We see it far too often on the news—senseless, unpredictable acts of violence. While we cannot predict the unpredictable, we do strongly believe that we can prepare for it.

ProActive Response Group works hard to provide individuals and organizations with the practical skills they need to respond in an active shooter event. Along with this skill-based training, our class participants learn to adopt an empowered mindset that gives them the confidence to act if an emergency were to occur in as unlikely a place as California.

Could you be your coworker’s first responder?

Workplace Violence Prevention for California Businesses

Instances of workplace violence are increasing across the US, and South Carolina is no exception.

That’s why it’s so important for businesses of California to provide their employees with active shooter response training. After all, to acknowledge the pending threat, but not give your team the tools they need to respond effectively is careless. Scenario-based, on-site training for corporations will not only teach employees to act as first responders in an emergency, but it will also empower them to survive.

ProActive Response Group holds Active Shooter Response classes in California, but sometimes larger companies prefer to take a blended learning approach to Active Shooter Response Training and provide a video curriculum to a portion of their workforce. If a video course is more feasible for your California-based team, check out our online training curriculum for active shooter response.

School Safety Drills & Medical Response for Orange County Schools

Our response training has been proven to save lives.

California schools are well aware that active shooter response training drills are a mandatory practice across the state. This means that California public schools are required by law to hold two active shooter training drills each year.

A real-life example of that training paying off is the story of Clayton Porter, an Anderson school teacher who went through Active Shooter Response Training at his District One School. A few months after the training, Porter experienced a life-threatening injury at home and was able to apply a tourniquet he had in his Bleeding Control Kit and save his own life.

Even though this did not happen at a California school, This story supports the case that teachers and staff need hands-on training in active shooter response and emergency medical response so they are prepared to respond effectively in a crisis.

Safer Manufacturing Facilities for Anderson

Industrial teams need hands-on training more than they need another safety manual.

Heavy industrial equipment is dangerous, and when accidents happen, a coworker’s trained medical response could mean the difference between life and death. Your role as an employer at a manufacturing business in California is to proactively prepare your team by providing them with emergency bleeding control training A team trained in emergency medical care will have the skills and confidence they need to respond and treat a life-threatening injury.

In addition to providing training in bleed control, make sure that your California facility also has Bleeding Control Kits onsite for emergency situations.

Church Security Assessments in California

The only way to prevent the worst is to prepare for it.

Even California religious establishments cannot ignore the threat of mass shootings. Church leaders must take the initiative to promote safety and preparedness among their staff and congregation.

Beginning with a safety assessment and on-site training, places of worship can learn to recognize potential threats before they become a reality.
