Civilian Response to An Active Shooter: What YOU Do Matters!

Thursday, June 9th, 8:30-10:30am

NCESD Ponderosa Room - 2nd Floor

According to a report recently released by the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Active Shooter Events in the United States are becoming more frequent; having increased from an average of 6.4 incidents/year between 2000 - 2006 to 16.4 incidents/year between 2007 - 2013.


Thankfully, your chances of being hurt or killed in a mass shooting still remains slim; however being prepared and knowing what to do BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER an active shooter event significantly increase your chances of survival.


Captain Doug Jones and Officers Cory Bernaiche and Kevin Battis with the Wenatchee Police Department will provide staff of the NCESD with the critical information that everyone needs to know to survive an active shooter event, including:

  • Strategies, guidance and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event based upon the AVOID, DENY, DEFEND strategy developed by the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training Center (ALERRT) at Texas State University in 2004.
  • What to expect and the actions you should take when Law Enforcement Officers arrive at the scene.
