Often, during a violent confrontation at an educational institution, there are many different groups that need to share information in real time to eliminate the threat as quickly as possible. These groups include teachers, school administration, law enforcement, fire and other first responders. Each group has its own unique communication methods, verbiage and immediate needs.

This session aims to utilize a fully interactive use of force simulation system to open discussion about how each group sees and communicates important aspects of a violent encounter and how they can best share and understand information rapidly in an effort to stop or prevent the threat as quickly as possible.

Session Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn the different verbiage and/or styles used by each group to communicate the same information.
  2. Learn to effectively communicate information in a way that the listener can understand.
  3. Practical application of these skill sets when confronted with an immediate threat to the safety of the institutions population.
