Active Shooter Level II

Active Shooter Level II Medical

Time: (16 hours/2 days)
Class Size: Minimum of 24 and max of 30 students per class
Prerequisite: Sworn law enforcement officer (Level I training preferred but not required)
Required Equipment: Good attitude, open mind, pen and paper, duty gear, body armor, groin protection, and appropriate clothing for "force-on-force" training (i.e. long sleeve shirt, gloves, etc.) Head, eye, and throat protection will be provided by ALERRT

Description: “The fate of the wounded rests with the one who applies the first dressing.” (Nicholas Senn, M.D. 1898) First responders are being trained to quickly enter into harm’s way to neutralize the shooter and save the lives of innocent victims in an active shooter event. In many circumstances, formally trained medical personnel will not or cannot be on the scene immediately to provide casualty care to wounded victims. First responders must be educated and trained in immediate casualty care techniques to save lives. The course includes Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC)-based self‑aid and buddy‑aid techniques as well as force‑on‑force mass casualty scenarios where participants will not only have to neutralize the shooter but also treat the wounded. 

If you are interested in hosting this class, please see the requirements listed below then fill out a Hosting Request Form.

Hosting Requirements: 

1) The primary host agency must be a state or local agency.

2) Each class is required to be filled with sworn state and local law enforcement officers from multiple agencies. In the event that federal or military personnel are inquiring about registering, and you have given priority to state/local officers, you are allowed up to 3 slots to approve for federal/military. These federal/military students must not take seats from state or local officers.

3) The host agency will provide an unoccupied school building with wide hallways and multiple classrooms or a similar ALERRT-approved facility. The building should have electricity, water and restrooms and climate control if needed. The building should be clean enough for participants to lie on the floor during scenarios. At least one room, on site, should have tables or desks and chairs for the lecture portion of the training. ALERRT will bring the computer, projector and extension cords to deliver the classroom lecture portion of the training, if necessary. ALERRT will provide all of the equipment for the training as well as paperwork, resupplies and consumables. We will not damage the facility in any way. We do use marking cartridges for the force-on-force training but we do not leave any residue behind. 95% of our training is done in unoccupied schools that are currently in use. Occasionally, we will use a decommissioned school that is being readied for remodel or reconstruction. We have used approved empty hospitals, office buildings, courthouses. These buildings must be approved by our training division. The host can send photos and description of building if need be.

4) The host agency will be responsible for registration. We will post the class to our website under ‘Upcoming Courses’, and list the POC’s contact information for registration. Under special circumstances, we can remove the class from the website at the agency’s request.

5) The host agency is responsible for the advertisement of the class. We will send you the course flyer for distribution.

6) ALERRT will issue certificates for all classes and, in Texas, we will post hours to TCOLE.

7) In the event a class can’t be filled ALERRT reserves the option to open registration nationwide or cancel the class.
