About Run, Hide, Fight – Emergency Training Drills

Due to defunding/managed attrition and Covid Rules, the Law Enforcement partners in the program
will not be giving in-person instruction until further notice.

An Active Shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area; in most cases, active shooters use firearms(s) and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the shooting and mitigate harm to victims.
Because active shooter situations are often over within 10 to 15 minutes, before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation. The Los Angeles Police Department and the City of Los Angeles Emergency Management Department want to help prepare you for an Active Shooter event by providing information, in-person training, and other resources free of charge
