Whether you have a school in a metropolitan area or a more remote location, there needs to be consistency in remaining proactive with how we plan, prepare, and train our staff in response to an Active Shooter Event.
With constant budget cuts, this can be a difficult task. When we look at having to update policy, review plans, implement training, and having to complete these tasks to meet deadlines, this can be very overwhelming. Often times, we put more focus and effort on developing our Emergency Action Plans (EAP) and less focus and effort on putting that plan into action through training.
With an ailing training plan, everything could look good on paper, but without putting that plan to the test to identify unforeseen contingencies, weak points, and faults we will not know until it is too late. An untested EAP, with a bare minimum training criteria, mixed with the mentality of “It will never happen here” is the worst case scenario when an emergency situation does happen, and B.E.C.O.N. was developed to address just that.
B.E.C.O.N. is an all-encompassing course that builds confidence and increases chances of survivability through a series of non-sequential options exercised in an emergency situation.
Our course will provide you with a more holistic view of the Active Shooter/Killer that will assist in identifying potentially violent persons, statistical information that will give you a deeper understanding of historical Active Shooter Events, and hands-on practical exercises that will result with you walking away with an escalated level of confidence and proactive options to respond effectively to an emergency situation.
This course is complemented with a shot exposure to an AK-47, M4 Carbine, 38 pistol, and shotgun whereas we shoot these weapon systems in front of you, one wall away, and outside the building so you experience what shots being fired may sound like.
Because we are so inspired to get this life saving information out there to you, we have provided an additional option for your staff. You can choose a portion of your staff to take the basic 8 hr. course, and the remainder of your staff to stay for day 2, Instructor level 16 hr. course. This will assist you in facilitating and sustaining your training needs for your facility.
