With AVERT – Active Violence Emergency Response Training - you'll learn how to recognize the signs of danger, react appropriately, and make rapid survival decisions. AVERT goes beyond active shooter response training by also teaching how to control life-threatening bleeding.
When violence occurs, seconds count, and you can't always wait for EMS to arrive. AVERT enables you to become an immediate responder by giving you the tools to prepare for potential violence and react quickly in life-threatening situations. After an AVERT training session, you and your team will be able to:
*Recognize warning signs using situational awareness.
*Decide whether to Escape, Evade or Attack.
*Apply critical bleeding control techniques, respond quickly and confidently in an emergency, and develop an Emergency Action Plan (EAP).
Uncontrolled bleeding is a serious emergency. Blood loss due to trauma is a leading cause of preventable death in the United States. If care is delayed, even by a few minutes, uncontrolled bleeding can quickly become life-threatening. When active violence occurs, time is critical to survival. Being able to react quickly and with confidence is vital to saving lives.
