How to Survive an Active Shooter Incident
Tulen Center presents an hour long event on Thursday, April 13th at 7PM entitled, “Strategies for Surviving an Active Shooter Incident”. This presentation is free, and is open to adults only. No children, please.
From Columbine to the Clackamas Town Center, from Sandy Hook to Umpqua Community College, the FBI reports Active Shooter incidents are on the rise. Though this can be an uncomfortable topic to think about, learning what is involved with an active shooter situation is important because planning and preparation can help you stay safe.
You will learn the background and history of active shooter incidents in the US, which put our current day situation in context, and the specifics of “Run, Hide, Fight”, the response developed by the FBI with strategies to survive an active shooter situation. Give-and-take discussion will give you a chance to process all the information with a group of other wonderful human beings who have the same concerns and questions you do.
The presenter, Silvia Smart, runs Tulen Center and is an educator as well as a sixth degree black belt. She teaches martial arts and self-defense classes at her school and to organizations and corporations. She has been lucky enough to take part in the FBI Citizen’s Academy, to attend FBI trainings specifically on this subject matter, and has been given the green light to share what she knows with the community.
