Build confidence through live simulations
If an active shooter or other violent incident does occur on public transportation, AVERT training teaches employees how to safely escape, evade, or attack. One unique feature of this program is the use of live scenario simulations. These simulations recreate the stress and chaos of an actual active shooter situation to allow individuals to practice their decision-making skills in a controlled environment and respond quickly. This immersive approach to training helps build confidence and preparedness in the event of a real-life emergency.
Emergency training to stop the bleed
While escape and evasion techniques are extremely important, AVERT training also covers critical bleeding control methods such as applying tourniquets and packing wounds. In the event of a shooting or other such violent incident, there is a strong likelihood that individuals may suffer serious injuries that require immediate attention. By training in these medical techniques, employees can help to save lives and also reduce the risk of death from blood loss.Download Our Infographic
