According to the Gun Violence Archive, there have been 389 mass shootings this year as of July 2021. There’s also been a surge in gun violence across the country heading into the heat of summer, coupled with the aftermath of the pandemic.
This makes active violence training more important than ever.
AVERT empowers people to save lives by training organizations to anticipate potential danger, react quickly if active violence occurs, and become an immediate responder to life-threatening bleeding.
