Active Violence Emergency Response Training (AVERT)

When active violence occurs, time is critical to survival. Being able to react quickly and with confidence is vital to saving lives.

PRISM has partnered with the Health & Safety Institute (HSI) to provide members access to Active Violence Emergency Response Training (AVERT). AVERT goes beyond active shooter training and uses dynamic methods to teach employees proactive awareness, how to react and protect themselves and others in a violent situation, and how to respond to severe injuries that are often a result of these occurrences.

AVERT is a 2-hour course that emphasizes training in:

  • Warning Signs and Situational Awareness
  • Escape, Evade, Attack, and Active Shooter Response Procedures
  • Emergency Stop the Bleed Training Techniques

Employees will receive basic information on what to expect in an online module followed by classroom instruction that uses dynamic techniques with hands-on training to reinforce the taught life-saving skills.

After training, employees will be able to :

  • Recognize warning signs of a potential aggressor
  • Escape, evade or attack in the critical seconds during an event
  • Apply critical bleeding control techniques to help save lives
  • Respond quickly in a violent or emergency situation

Give employees the confidence they need to respond with the appropriate action if active violence or a life-threatening situation arises.
