What To Do During An In Progress Active Shooter Crisis

As active shooter situations are generally over within 5-15 minutes and often before the arrival of law enforcement officers, individuals must be prepared both physically and mentally to deal with an in progress active shooter situation.
Active shooter incidents are unpredictable and generally evolve quickly: Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the shooting and mitigate the threat. However, many active shooter situations have been stopped by armed citizens or those that are prepared to intervene to stop the threat.

The National Tactical Officer’s Association (NTOA) defines active shooter as... “one or more subjects who participate in a random or systematic shooting spree, demonstrating their intent to continuously harm others. An active shooter’s overriding objective appears to be that of mass murder, rather than criminal conduct such as robbery kidnapping, etc.”
