Active Shooter and Active Assailant  situations cannot be predicted, so preparation is critical.  Waiting ensures one thing, you won’t be prepared should an incident occur.  That is why SCG developed our unique training program called P.A.C.E.- Prepare, Action, Care, Evacuate.

It is important to realize that training needs to evolve.  Most training only focuses on Run – Hide – Fight and simply use the Active Shooter as the primary means of attack.  This limits our ability to properly plan and prepare for the worst case scenario.  We at SCG help train not just for an Active Shooter but also Active Assailants.   We help you prepare for assailant who use weapons of all types from firearms, vehicles, knives, and explosives.
