What is the COBRA-Defense Active Shooter Plan?

This program was created by a seasoned law enforcement officer with active shooter training.

We can tell you from experience that these killers will always exist. You cannot stop them. You cannot create laws to successfully keep them suppressed. They will find a gun, they will find soft targets, and they will do everything in their power to kill a large number of people. The C.O.B.R.A. Defense Active Shooter Response Training is designed to address this reality and to minimize the damage.

Not Just for School Shootings

Shootings can happen in many different locations, and they happen at random

You have no way of knowing in advance when or where this is going to happen. You may be sitting in church on Sunday, minding your own business, and have no idea that a psychopath is armed and is headed in your direction. The first indication you have that anything is wrong is when the gunman starts shooting. At the COBRA-DEFENSE Active Shooter Seminar, you will learn what to do at that moment.

We Will Teach You Much More than Run, Hide and Fight.

It seems simple enough. Run, Hide, Fight. The truth is that these three words are more of a government sound bite than a usable plan of action.

Of course you will run, but there are specific ways to run that can save your life. We'll show you 4 Tactical Ways to RUN.

Of course you will be looking for places to hide and we'll show you what to look for in a hiding spot and when to leave it. You'll learn 3 Strategic Methods to HIDE.

Fighting is foreign to most people. We'll show you how and when to attack the shooter for maximum safety. You'll learn 4 Smart Ways to FIGHT.

You'll even learn the correct way to play dead.

Why Employers Should Prepare For Active Shooter Situations

People have a greater chance of dying in mass shootings if they're at school or work

Incidents in schools and businesses represent 70% of active shootings. Some of the country's most high-profile mass shootings have occurred at schools and workplaces such as Sandy Hook, Columbine, Virginia Tech and San Bernardino

The Majority of Shootings Happen at a Workplace

Almost 70% of those shooters were NOT employees or former employees at the business they shot up.

Schools and churches are common locations of violent events, but active shootings at those locations occur at roughly half the rate of those in commercial businesses. COBRA-DEFENSE trains business organizations, health care facilities, cruise lines, schools, and churches year-round.

OSHA Requires Workplace Violence Training

OSHA can fine employers if reasonable steps to maintain a safe workplace are not taken.

One government agency sure to get involved if there is an active shooter situation in your workplace is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. OSHA may cite and fine employers for failing to provide workers with adequate safeguards against workplace violence.

How Active Shooter Situations End

Knowing how to physically engage a shooter can make the difference 

Unarmed citizens ended a significant number (13%) of active shooter events.  Armed citizens and off duty cops ended far fewer (4%).  Shooters often choose locations where guns are prohibited.  The COBRA-DEENSE Active Shooter program teaches specific strategies that reduce the danger when physically attacking the shooter
