Excellent Training!

by John Hines
This course goes beyond the standard Run, Hide, Fight philosophy. It provides simple, easy-to-remember tips on survival, preparation, and life-saving first aid techniques that are not found in other Active Shooter courses. The real-life examples force you to be more aware about who is around you and your family.

Mike, this is a well done presentation. It is very sincere and provides a lot of good insights for people to use should they find themselves in a mass shooting or major incident scenario. I like the way you started with the Columbine and Century Theater shootings as the basis for the narrative to follow. I think it brings the mind to a familiar situation/location we can all relate to. The concept of BFF is simple and easy to remember in a situation and that is the key to survivor a mass shooter incident. Well done!
