In 2019, almost every day it seems, there was another report of an active shooter that walked into a school, church, or business; another evil person that entered a building armed, with the intent to kill someone or everyone without regard to their own survival. The question we ask is “are you and your staff truly prepared to survive an event like that?”

  • Preparation that would allow you to see the early warning signs
  • Preparation that would teach you the immediate actions to take
  • Preparation for the medical assistance you will need to provide so you and those around you are survivors and not victims.

This year’s Advisory Conference is being facilitated by ProActive Response Group. ProActive Response Group are well-trained veteran SWAT team leaders, with first-hand experience in hostage rescues and high-risk dignitary protection. The skills offered have been specifically developed to provide workplace leaders with effective courses of action in actual critical situations.
