Violence is Preventable! To prevent violence our focus must remain on identifying people with violent intentions, not understanding them.

Prevention is being pro-active and anticipating potential risks and mitigating them before they happen. In order to recognize risk factors, identify attack pre-cursors and issue timely alerts, we must know how to gauge the Accuracy, Relevancy and Timeliness (ART) of the information collected. This can be done successfully by adhering to Best Practices addressed in this lesson.

In order to survive Active Shooter or terrorist attacks, people at the scene must be able to work together and take immediate actions. In life threatening circumstances, we automatically resort to employing skills and a plan that have been practiced previously. We have no time, nor the presence of mind, to plan and execute a new course of action when under duress. Pre-incident training in effective response improves personal safety.

The next tragedy can be prevented and more lives would be saved if we focused on training on what to do to save ourselves when the next attack occurs. We must know what to expect and how to ACT when escape is impossible and help is delayed. Remember that life is beautiful, and it is worth fighting for!
