Active Shooter Training 

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) defines an active shooter as an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and other populated area. In most cases, active shooters use firearms and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly.
