Why Choose PREVAIL! Virtual Active Shooter Training System?

Simply put, PREVAIL!™ is designed to change the mindset of all viewers, trainees and participants. This program instills a ‘prevailing’ attitude – as opposed to a ‘survival’ attitude. There is a difference!

The result of a partnership between Sollah Interactive and Strategos International, the goals and objectives of PREVAIL!™ provide workplace leadership, management, security and front line personnel with information and strategies on recognizing and responding to the dynamic challenges and issues of violent incidents within the workplace.

PREVAIL!™ is a completely new approach to active shooter training. Trainees start with a dramatic video of an active shooter situation. The PREVAIL!™ package then uses follow-up training modules to focus on key training moments found throughout dramatic video.

The PREVAIL! Difference

Here are a few key points that differentiate PREVAIL!™ from other active shooter program and models:

  • The PREVAIL!™ 3-OUT model is proactive, not reactive.
  • PREVAIL!™ increases capability while decreasing anxiety. The 3-OUT model is easy to remember. Easy to implement after training session.
  • The PREVAIL!™ 3-OUT model is not linear; but it’s principle-based. Your OUT depends on your location to the threat. And My OUT is not always Your OUT.
  • We drive home the key issue of normalcy bias – and how our body needs to get past sight – and trust other inputs.
  • PREVAIL!™ changes your mindset – from just surviving to prevailing! Surviving is defensive; prevailing is about taking action.
  • The PREVAIL!™ model focuses on gross motor skills vs. fine motor skills. In a stressful event, fine motor skills are typically the first thing that goes.

How can PREVAIL! be used in your organization?

PREVAIL!™ was designed in easy-to-use modules. Organizations using PREVAIL!™ have several implementation paths – including 1, 2 and 4 hour training options.

Typically, each training session starts with PREVAIL!™. This dramatic video sets the stage for the session by engaging participants quickly – emotionally – by watching an active shooter event unfold in their workplace.

Next, Preparing to PREVAIL!™ level sets the session by discussing key points in an active shooter event. PREVAIL!™: The OUT Actions™ goes into detail about the 3-OUT Approach.
