AVERT – Active Violence Emergency Response Training – teaches you how to identify danger indications, respond effectively, and make quick survival decisions. Beyond active shooter reaction training, AVERT teaches participants how to stop life-threatening bleeding.
When an act of violence happens, seconds matter, and you cannot always wait for emergency medical personnel to arrive. AVERT prepares you to be an instant responder by equipping you with the skills necessary to anticipate potential violence and act swiftly in life-threatening circumstances. Following an AVERT training session, you and your team will be able to do the following:
Incidents can occur everywhere, and in any location, responding rapidly to life-threatening circumstances is vital. Your team will learn situational awareness and the ability to respond quickly in an emergency with AVERT.
Uncontrolled bleeding is a life-threatening emergency, and blood loss as a result of trauma is the leading avoidable cause of death in the United States. Uncontrolled bleeding may soon become life-threatening if treatment is delayed, even by a few minutes.
When active violence erupts, survival is crucial. Being able to respond swiftly and confidently is critical for lifesaving.
AVERT was created by law enforcement, private security, and medical specialists. The training makes abilities formerly reserved for first responders available to the general public in order to educate them on how to aid themselves and others. AVERT has been taught at corporations, churches, government facilities, schools, hospitals, and other venues—hundreds of organizations have used and trusted the AVERT program to teach their workers, members, and students.
