In an active shooter situation… being trained saves lives.

An active shooter situation is something few of us have prepared for. And it’s that lack of preparation that raises anxiety…and fear. Training increases our ability to take appropriate action. It gives us a greater sense of preparedness, which will help with anxiety and stress levels – especially during a shooter situation.

Sollah Interactive has teamed up with Strategos International to create several training packages to empower your employees to… PREVAIL!™  Below pricing is for DVD or USB format for companies with less than 50 staff members.  If you have more than 50 employees we recommend our online learning management system format in which employees can login and take the course at their own pace and management can track completion progress as well as quiz scores for each employee.  For a quote for more than 50 employees please call us at 888.569.5444 or email us at prevail@strategosintl.com.

The 3-OUT Approach

PREVAIL!™ teaches a very simple active shooter/workplace violence plan that is easy to remember. We call it the “3-OUT Approach.” This is a system of principles that can be applied at virtually any location. It will provide trainees with the best responses in a given situation. The 3-OUT Approach focuses on using gross motor skills (not fine motor skills which quickly leave us in a stressful situation) and recall in order to prevail during these types of events. The 3-OUT Approach is:

  • LOCK OUT– Can I lock this space down and/or barricade it to prevent or delay entry to me?
  • GET OUT– Can I get out or away from the area of the shooter?
  • TAKE OUT– You have no other option but to fight at this point and try to direct others around you to do the same.

These 3-OUT Approach is not a linear response approach! Your location – in relation to the threat – will determine which OUT action is appropriate based on:

  • your environment
  • the location of the threat
  • and what resources you have at your disposal

So, the OUT that’s best for you, may not be correct for the person that is even a short distance from your location.  (My OUT may not be your OUT!)

The Bottom Line…

Being prepared… that’s what can dramatically increase confidence and reduce your anxiety on this topic.  Additionally preparedness will increase your probabilities of prevailing during a shooting event. Why? Because the shooter is NOT counting on you being ready to act!

Being prepared begins with…accepting the reality that today’s world demands us to be ready for the unexpected. AND… changing the way YOU see your environment.
