Sadly, mass shootings are affecting our country more and more every day. Violence isn't limited to any specific economic area, state or building. Our most sacred places such as schools, churches, and the workplace are targets of violence that we are hearing about too often. This class will look at past tragedies and use what we have learned to discuss topics such as: knowing the signs, special security situations, triage for the wounded, and what to do after.  

* You have 4 weeks to complete this course from date of your enrollment.

  • Recognize the signs of a possible mass shooter
  • Identify the emergency plans for schools, churches, and businesses
