THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS
Join the Monona East Side Business Alliance (MESBA) at this power lunch where we’ll hear from Monona Police Officer, Jim Reiter. He will provide tips and information on what to do AND what not to do at your business if an active shooter situation arises. This will be an overview of the Active Shooter Training that is provided in depth by the Monona Police Department.
After the presentation, we’ll have lunch catered by Breakwater and open networking.
The Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training organization (ALERRT) made up of representatives from the Texas State University, the San Marcos Police Department, and the Hays County Sheriff’s Office came into existence as a direct result of the Columbine High School tragedy in 1999. This incident demonstrated a need for increased training for first responders and civilians alike in active shooter response. Since its inception in 2002, the ALERRT organization has become a national leader in civilian response to active shooter events (CRASE) training. In 2013 the FBI adopted their model and began providing “train the trainer” courses nationwide for law enforcement personnel. The program is designed around the simple acronym ADD which stands for AVOID, DENY, and DEFEND. In 2015 Officer James Reiter was trained by ALERRT and has since been offering this valuable training to civilians around Monona.
Cost is $12 members / $18 for non-members
