How to Recognize and Respond

to an Extreme Violence Event

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.
