The first 60-seconds of an attack are when an amateur shooter is most efficient. During this time, he is mentally clear on his plan (which is reliant on the element of surprise.) Also, it is most likely that he will not have to reload during this time and potentially face a jam or malfunction.
On the other hand, potential victims are in a reactive mode when face to face with the shooter. Disbelief is the first emotion consistently felt by the majority of interviewed people who have survived an active shooter attack. This is where Blueline’s comprehensive end-user training is most effective, as we prepare our clients to act, rather than react.
“Action is faster than Reaction.” This rule must always be applied when facing an Active Threat.
Decreasing the time it takes for reality to process and to react is critical for survival. The primary goal should always be to create an unforeseen change or distraction that takes the shooter out of his plan, within 15 seconds.
Local Law Enforcement participation is key to the implementation of the AT-EAS. Our retired first responders are tasked with developing partnerships with local responding agencies, prior to entering into an agreement with our clients. A thorough understanding of AT-EAS functionality, false alert mitigation safeguards and our management of law enforcement-sensitive contact information, are the key areas of concern we address.
The Blueline 360 team had developed partnerships with Law Enforcement Agencies throughout Florida and Georgia.
