Move icon

Get away from violence, putting time and distance between you and the intruder.



Immediately evacuate from the building you are in, moving a safe distance out of sight from the affected area, and take as many people with you. Do not let others slow you down.



Respond to the threat, lockdown or barricade doors and windows. Prepare to fight back!



Call 911 to inform others about the threat.


TREAT icon

Provide care for the injured and STOP THE BLEED! Do not wait for first responders to arrive. Immediately start medical care for yourself and others using pre-staged lifesaving equipment.


MERIT focuses on instilling the mindset of recognizing and moving away from the violence and giving participants a plan of action.

Most people believe that during a crisis, such as an active shooter event, people panic and hysteria ensues. Studies have shown that people who lack training or a plan of action typically freeze or rationalize away what their senses are telling them as some kind of a nonthreatening event.

Our program does not consist of inappropriate photos or unnecessary gore. We rely on our experience as instructors and the science of the body’s response in a critical incident to formulate a comprehensive training program. 


A 4-hour or 8-hour course that is specifically designed to train civilians how to respond to active shooters situations. In many cases, there is no pattern or method to the selection of victims by an active shooter; these situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. DPREP offers training to better prepare civilians to deal with an active shooter situation by raising awareness of pre-incident indicators and characteristics of active shooters.

Attendees will

  • Be presented with case studies, training videos and a presentation.

  • Leave with knowledge and practical skills to better prepare and respond to active shooter scenarios.

  • Will be certified in “Stop the Bleed,” immediate bystander care for the injured (8-hour course).

  • Participate in a hands on drill at the end of the presentation that will incorporate the tactics learned during the training session (in-person course).
