The recent San Bernardino Terrorist Attacks have caused many people to take a second look at their personal security. How do you survive an active killer event? The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) advises the “Run, Hide, Fight” model, but what exactly does this mean?
Tipping the odds in your favor against an Active Shooter is what the Vertus Active Killer Survival Training Program is about.
After the massacre at Ft Hood in 2009, Vertus was selected to develop the program and provide the training for the US Army’s MP and CID Agents on how to effectively “Neutralize” an Active Shooter (Killer). Since then, Vertus has trained thousands of Military and Law Enforcement personnel in its proprietary Rapid Threat Neutralization (RTN) program, which is regarded as one of the most comprehensive and practical “Active Shooter ” programs in the USA.
In 2013, Vertus developed and implemented the Civilian version of this program, the Active Killer Survival (AKS) Program. The AKS is specifically designed for Campuses, Health Care Facilities and Corporate Environments. Vertus’ Active Killer Survival training teaches the students how to effectively run, hide, and fight. It teaches what you can do to cover your movements, hide your strategies and what objects you can use to provide ballistic protection. It also teaches the student how to identify or to make improvised weapons quickly. This program helps the unarmed and untrained civilian increase their chances of survival during an active killer shooting event.
