    With over 700 Workplace Homicides every year in the US alone, learning how to survive an active shooter scenario is critical, to say the least. Given the fact that often times people are harmed but not knowing what to do in this crisis situation, Paul invites SWAT Team supervisor/trainer and active shooter specialist Paul Merritt to crystalize the do’s and don’ts from both a management and non-management perspective. Together, they deliver a blueprint that can very well keep you alive if this happens to you. Don’t miss our library at www.viollis.com.
