PIHRA Ventura County

Active Shooter Training:
Educating the Public to be Prepared

presented by Senior Deputy Michael Baker


It seems lately all one has to do is turn on the news and hear about an active shooting event. It has happened in such places as Sandy Hook Elementary, Aurora, Colorado while at the movies, the Walmart in El Paso, San Bernardino, Dayton, Ohio, attending church in South Carolina or Texas,at a concert in Las Vegas.

The question one needs to ask is not, if it is going to happen but WHEN.

Senior Deputy Michael Baker will present on this very timely topic the simple concept of what to do in the event of an active assailant situation which is RUN, HIDE, FIGHT.

  • You will learn what to do to keep yourself safe in a violent crisis situation.
  • How to identify some signs that indicate risk and or threat.
  • Being aware and paying attention to your surroundings.
  • Focusing and understanding this phenomenon a little better as well as preparing a mindset for survival and NOT paranoia.

So remember to RUN, HIDE, FIGHT
