Dimoff will be discussing: ACTIVE SHOOTER - Prevention and Response...and the shift in the traditiinal "lockdown" response.

Workplace aggression and active shooter threats are increasing and a major concern in today's rage-filled culture in schools, businesses and other organizations. Active shooter and aggresive behavior situations are nearly everyday occurrances, and every type of environment needs to recognize the red flags.

With the program ACTIVE SHOOTER - Prevention and Response, Dimoff will explain how research and experience has caused a demand to "shift" Active Shooter Training from traditional "lockdown" only approach to a combination of .A.L.I.C.E., Homeland Secuurity Training and SACS Consulting Research with proven techniques from real life scenarios.
