    Breakfast Brief: Violence Prevention, Preparation and Critical Response

    7:30 am-10:00 am
    10/16/2018
    The Woodlands
    Falmouth, ME

    Please join KMA and Clark Insurance for our breakfast event, “Violence Prevention, Preparation and Critical Response,” presented by Blue-U Defense.

    The key to a safer workplace (or anyplace violence might occur) is prevention, preparation, and response in the moment.

    Did you know that surviving a sudden incident of violence is 90% mental and 10% physical skill?

    This presentation will focus on the 90% mental, while also providing the skills to survive the 10% physical, as a last resort. You will learn how to make good decisions in a fraction of a second. That’s what it takes to survive.

    Some of the topics we will cover:

    • The decision making process, and how to master it
    • The dynamics of an incident
    • Hallways/offices/gathering areas
    • Your building is the high ground
    • Running towards or away from your adversary?
    • De-escalation skills
    • The importance of recognizing signs of violence
    • OODA loop
    • Visualization and debrief of scenarios
    • How to implement a violence/active shooter plan for your workplace

Client Praise

I didn’t want to let the day go by without a ‘thank you’ for that really stimulating breakfast brief presentation this morning. That meeting was really worth the time and energy to attend. I left with things to think about, which is probably the highest praise I can give for a session such as that.
