Learn How to Respond During Active Shooter Incidents

You’re at a concert, shopping at the mall, or in some other public place and hear what sounds like gunfire. Do you know what to do? If you can’t answer “yes” to this question, A.L.I.V.E. Active Shooter Survival Response Training will teach you the steps you can take to increase your chances of survival during a mass shooting incident.

Who Should Take Active Shooter Training?


Anyone can benefit from learning how to respond to active shooter incidents. Some of the more common places for an active shooter situation include schools, hospitals, governmental facilities, and various types of businesses. But these events can occur at any time and in any location, impacting people of all ages, races, and other demographics.


If law enforcement is notified of an active shooting, they are trained to respond swiftly and effectively. However, what you do in the first few minutes of an active shooter situation—before officers are able to reach you and stop the threat—can impact your ability to survive. A.L.I.V.E.’s active shooter training courses teach you exactly what to do should one of these events occur near you or your family.

What is the A.L.I.V.E. Active Shooter Response?

The A.L.I.V.E. Active Shooter Survival Training program is based on the five steps that, when taken, can improve your ability to survive incidents not just involving active shooters, but other types of violent attackers as well.

A.L.I.V.E. stands for:

  • Assess the situation quickly

  • Leave the area if you can

  • Impede the shooter, making you and others with you a more difficult target

  • Violence may be necessary if the threat has not stopped and the shooter is closing in on you

  • Expose yourself carefully to law enforcement once the event is over

Training so that these five actions become almost instinctive helps you create a swift, more effective active shooter response.

Don’t wait until you hear gunfire around you to learn how to respond. Enroll in active shooter training today so you know what to do immediately if you are ever in this type of life-threatening situation.
