Active Shooter Awareness Training is offered to the Public August 19th at 10:00AM and 1:30PM at the Shelby County Emergency Management & Homeland Security Agency EOC.
The active shooter awareness training is a 1.5 hour lecture in what you are to do before, during, and after an active shooter incident. Information is provided based upon the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and FBI recommended response to an active shooter situation.
This training is an awareness class that teaches the basics of what to do during an Active Shooter Event. Students will learn the history of active shooter events, the process of Run(Avoid), Hide(Deny), Fight(Defend), as well as basic concepts of mass shootings, understanding law enforcement response, and assisting in the prevention of mass shooting events.
Learn how to prepare for the unexpected by taking the FREE Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training from the Shelby County Office of Preparedness. CERT students learn life-saving skills; gain a new confidence that they will know what do before, during and after a disaster. And be able to assist family, neighbors, and co-workers until the professional rescuers arrive on the scene.
CERT training is presented through lectures, videos, and hands-on exercises to teach students what to do before, during, and after a disaster.
