Active Attacker Response Training
The parent company to Hansen Firearms Training is Active Violence Solutions LLC or “AVS”. AVS was started in response to the growing need for consulting and training for a proactive response to active attacker events both in the private and public sectors. Active Attacker incidents, commonly referred to as “Active Shooter”, can happen in any place and at any time. One of the most challenging aspects of these horrific encounters is the misunderstanding that “not much can be done”. We believe that vigilant preparation can go a long way in mitigating the risks associated with these tragedies. In the United States, FEMA has led the way in outlining a basic response plan for laypersons and first responders. However, most of the programs presented to the public are heavy on statistics and theory but they lack the actual hands-on technical skills we believe are crucial to making a better outcome. Consequently, AVS developed a curriculum that we began teaching to contracted companies and agencies. Some of our clients include Orange County Assessor’s Office, the City of Mission Viejo, and various churches and private security companies.
Please contact us from this website or at AVS’s website at www.violenceresponse.com if your company or agency is interested in Active Attacker Response training. We offer a few different options and pricing structures depending on the depth of training desired, the number of students participating, and whether the curriculum is to cover the “unarmed” or “armed” response to events. We’re certified to instruct American Red Cross and American Heart Association CPR and first aid classes, as well as Stop the Bleed components which can be added to any class. We’ve also partnered with HSI, an industry workplace safety leader, through teaching their AVERT program. This is beneficial if your insurance requires an industry recognized certification to go along with the training.
