Active Threat Response Program for Businesses
Workplace Safety, Workplace Violence, employee safety
The Active Threat Response Program (ATRP) for Employees is designed to provide staff with the confidence needed in order to protect and defend their own lives, and any dependents; in the event of an intruder, active shooter or killer, or other terror attack. The program is offered in 2-steps:
I. ATRP Lecture-
The ATRP Lecture is a 3-hour interactive training on workplace violence prevention, and the importance of preparing for hostile intruders, active shooters, or other workplace threats. Participants will learn how to create an individualized plan for their work space and feel empowered to act to a threat. Participants will gain confidence throughout the lecture as they learn how to formulate a plan and learn recommendations of how to practice this plan throughout their daily routine.
II. ATRP Mock Scenarios: Practical and Simulation-
The ATRP Mock Scenarios: Practical and Simulation portion of the program is a 3-hour experience in the workplace. Staff will be split into small groups and guided by a GD instructor with a ratio of 1:10 or smaller. During the Practical portion, the GD instructor will review concepts learned during the ATRP Lecture and show the techniques in the work space. Once participants feel comfortable with the information, the program will move on to the Simulation portion. The Simulations will begin with a basic emergency lockdown, and progress through several simulations, ending with one that will require quick action and decision-making. GD instructors will perform a controlled, live simulation complete with gunfire using blank ammunition, which will allow staff to implement the techniques learned through a more realistic scenario. All Simulations are followed by a debriefing in the classroom with a final group debriefing after the last simulation. The goal of the mock scenario is to ensure that staff leave the program feeling more confident in their abilities to develop and implement their own individualized plan for their work space.
