Take Control of Decision Collisions

Learn how to recognize and take control of your decision collisions. A decision collision is when you have two goals that cancel each other out.

A simple example is someone who wants to lose weight, but “can’t” resist fatty foods. One goal is to eat what you like the other is to get in shape. Which goal wins? That is a Decision Collision.

What's Your Plan?

Having an established and practiced active shooter plan can greatly increase your odds of survival.

Our Active Shooter Response Plan is a step-by-step plan to help you to escape, evade, and if needed, engage the shooter.

This is a law enforcement based response plan. This has been developed and tested  by the people who are on the front lines of responding to an active shooter.
