Daytona Beach, FL- The Daytona Beach Police Department is offering a workshop on how to survive an active shooter situation. In the wake of the tragic mass shooting in Orlando, the workshop is aimed at teaching citizens how to increase their survival chances during an active shooting.
Police Captain Lance Blanchette, in charge of the Support Resources Division, is the lead instructor for the workshop. This will be the third time he is running the workshop. He said that run, hide, fight are the three steps to dealing with an active shooter situation.
The covered topics include pre-incident indicators, law enforcement response, how to develop a personal plan and how to foster a “survivalist mindset.”
Blanchette said you have to assess your surroundings, no matter where you are, so that you can be prepared if circumstances change. According to Blanchette, the option for the people at The Pulse would have been to fight.
The “Active Threat in Public Spaces: Run, Hide, Fight!” workshop happens this Saturday, June 25, at Daytona Beach headquarters, from 10 A.M. until noon. Blanchette said that no reservations are necessary.
