Muncie, IN – PASS Training and Compliance and Fortress Preparedness Services have partnered together to offer a training program related to active shooter awareness, preparedness, and prevention.
The program has two course categories, one for all employees and another for management and business owners. These training courses are unique in putting the primary focus on prevention instead of reaction. However, the conclusion of each course also provides safety guidelines should an armed attack occur.
The employee training course focuses on preventative measures including recognizing credible threats, reporting threats to supervision, and operating procedures in the event of an attack. The management course is a comprehensive preparedness module that provides guidance regarding risk assessments, written plans, and drills and training exercises.
The training program was developed by Fortress Preparedness Services. Company information is included below:
