CPPS is excited to announce the release of its newest video program “When Lightning Strikes – How to Recognize and Respond to an Extreme Violence Event”.
Since releasing the groundbreaking video, “Shots Fired – Guidance for Surviving an Active Shooter Situation” in 2007 after the Virginia Tech University tragedy, we have seen Extreme Violence evolve beyond an individual with a gun. Because the reality is that these events can happen to anyone, in any place, at any time, CPPS has created this latest program to prepare any individual to become situationally aware of their surroundings, pick up on early indicators that something might be wrong, and respond effectively if “Lightning Does Strike” and they find themselves in an Extreme Violence event.
When Lightning Strikes, is designed to help individuals, including children ages 12 and up, to become stakeholders in their own safety and security by learning to:
Recognize early indicators that an Extreme Violence event may be about to occur
Understand how to become “Situationally Aware” of their surroundings without being paranoid
Understand the difference between how “trained’ and “untrained” individuals respond in a crisis
Understand the role individual have in surviving the “Extreme Danger Gap” - the timeframe from the onset of violence until the arrival of Law Enforcement
Understand key individual response strategies for surviving an Extreme Violence event
Know what to do when Law Enforcement arrives
