The Southern Brooklyn COAD partnered with Matthew Siefer of Radius Investigations and Guardian Security Training to provide a free “How To Survive An Active Shooter” training for the community on August 9, 2018. The presentation was particularly focused on how we can come together as a community to not only fight back against an active shooter and remain vigilant in paying attention to warning signs, but also to provide a loving and nurturing environment in which we support individuals so that they never reach the point where they see mass violence as an option.

Participants learned the fundamentals of when and how to RUN, when and how to HIDE, and when and how to FIGHT, as well as how to recognize potential warning signs.
