Commit To Action: Countering Active Threat Training – Antisemitic rhetoric and incidents are on the rise, especially in the wake of the Hamas attacks on Israel. As the conflict rages on, the North American Jewish community continues to face an evolving threat landscape. This is a comprehensive training program to counter an active threat event for nonprofits, faith-based institutions, and houses of worship. Attendees will learn to:

  • Identify and explain the steps to survive and active threat incident: RUN, HIDE, FIGHT
  • Understand how to prepare for an active threat event
  • Know how to respond to law enforcement’s arrival
  • Recognize the importance of additional trainings such as Stop the Bleed
  • Commit to action during an active threat event
