Active Shooter Preparedness
As more agencies adopt the Rescue Task Force response model, or other new policies and procedures, the need to understand personal protection is more critical. In warm and hot zones, being protected from high level threats such as rifle fire requires the right kind of equipment. New technologies are available that make protection for high threat scenarios lighter and more maneuverable.
