Improving the Probability of Courage
Navigate360 strives for active shooter prevention, but we pioneered and innovated incident response. While protocols like ALICE Training are critically important, mindset is perhaps the largest factor in surviving a violent critical incident.
Fear is generally classified as an emotion. While panic is seen as a physical stress response, the two are connected. If they are combined, the experience is labeled extreme survival stress. This traumatic response is created by a combination of pre-existing conceptions and how startling the triggering event was. Thankfully, training can mitigate fear, and panic may be suppressed by situational awareness.
