Early Bird Breakfast - 2019 October - Surviving an Incident of Violence/Active Shooter
Surviving an Incident of Violence/Active Shooter
Presented by Terry Choate and Joe Hileman of BlueU
Successfully surviving a sudden incident of violence is 90% mental and 10% physical skill. This breakfast focuses on the 90% mental while concurrently providing skills to survive the 10% physical, as a last resort.
This event will provide a solid foundation for gaining the skills necessary to prepare for “making good decisions in fractions of a second”. This is what is required to survive – the skill to be able to make “Good Decisions in Fractions of a Second”. It will bring critical general skills in mastering the decision making process by bringing students a solid understanding of “the bad guy”.
Finally, in the work environment, the most important factors are recognizing signs of violence in advance and becoming proficient in de-escalation techniques. These skills are critical as they can be the most important factors in either calming or fueling anger levels. The end result of this breakfast will also provide all attendees with a base “mindset” and thought process that will keep them as safe as possible while they are away from work as much as it does while they are at work. The key to doing this is truly believing it can happen to you and knowing in advance how to prevent, prepare, and respond for such an event.
BlueU will cover Practical Personal Defense designed to keep your employees safe while away from work via preparation for an incident of violence primarily through awareness, avoidance, and mental strength building. If your people are your most important asset, they are just as important while they are away from work as they are while at work. This material includes 100% practical, highly effective tactics and techniques that do not require practice or thought training
