Active Shooter Training
Go Beyond Active Shooter Response Training
When violence occurs, seconds count, and you can't always wait for EMS to arrive. Our training enables you to become an immediate responder. With HSI’s dynamic Active Violence Emergency Response Training (AVERT), you’ll empower your team to help save lives in the event of an urgent threat or emergency.
In addition to active shooter response training, your organization will learn to react to life-threatening blood-loss situations.Let's Talk

When time is critical
Uncontrolled bleeding is a serious emergency. Blood loss due to trauma is a leading cause of preventable death in the United States. If care is delayed, even by a few minutes, uncontrolled bleeding can quickly become life-threatening.
When active violence occurs, time is critical to survival. Being able to react quickly and with confidence is vital to saving lives.
Our unique TAC+PAC kits are designed with the sole purpose of helping to save lives. Made with the components necessary for emergency bleeding control, all of the contents are allergen-free with no expiration date, so they are always ready when you are.
"AVERT is one of the most enthusiastic, engaging, and informative training programs ever!"
