Let’s face it, our world has changed, and we need to change with it. We need to retrain our brain for these horrible situations. We at TLT can help us all do just that. At TLT Defense, don’t care which side of the gun fence you fall on. Pro-gun? Anti-gun? It doesn’t matter to the shooters, so it doesn’t matter to us. Our goal is to make sure you get home safely, every day.
Instinct comes from training.
Everything we do every day is what we’ve taught our brains to do. Our brain is taught to drive a car by practicing. We learned with an experienced guide next to us. It could have been a teacher, a private driving school, or a parent. No matter who it was, it was someone who took time to teach you to drive safely. While it’s possible to gain driving instruction from a book or a video, and possible to pass a driver’s test at the DMV with just video training, its unlikely that you would have enough real experience to drive safely.
Training is about safety.
Just like learning how to handle driving situations safely. In today’s threat-filled world, it’s time to learn how to handle an Active/Mass Shooting situation safely. It’s time to leave the panic behind, and let the training get you back home. TLT Defense is here to help you learn how to get out safely. The instructors at TLT have spent the last few years learning how to handle these situations so they can get home to their families every day no matter what happens and now they want to pass this knowledge onto everyone that wants to learn.
In 2018 60% of all Active/Mass Shooter events happened at a business location. Don’t let the “The odds are it won’t happen here!” mentality stop you from being prepared for these horrible events.
Businesses in today’s world need to comply with OSHA’s General Duty Clause!
TLT Defense has created a House of Worship training program to:
- Maximize Safety of congregants, staff, volunteers and leadership
- Provide Accountability by documenting completed training and preparation for each participant.
- Reduce Liability by implementing and training in alignment with state and federal standards of care for violent intruder events.
Everyone should feel safe in their own home. Our home is our sanctuary and fortress of solitude.
Yet according to 2019 crime statistics:
- Approximately 11.5 people out of 10,000 fall victim to property crime every year (US Department of Justice, FBI).
- There is one burglary every 13 seconds.
- There are between 2.3 and 2.6 million robberies every year in the United States.
- 7.2% of home invasions turn violent.
Active/Mass shooter events at a healthcare facility present a lot of challenges; Doctors and nurses may be faced with a decision about what to do with patients; Patients family and friends will be present; and there are some patients that will be unable to move because of medical reasons. TLT Defense will come to your healthcare facility and work your current staff to make sure that procedures and protocols will be put into place that will minimize casualties and keep
everyone as safe as possible.
In 1990 The Cleary Act was put into place and it is very important to both the schools and students alike.
The Clery Act is a consumer protection law that aims to provide transparency around campus crime policy and statistics.
In order to comply with Clery Act requirements, colleges and universities must understand what the law entails, where their responsibilities lie, and what they can do to actively foster campus safety. TLT Defense training will help the school meet and even exceed The Cleary Act.
Our nation’s schools are entrusted to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for all of our students in public and nonpublic schools. Our communities expect schools to keep their children and safe from all threats including emergencies such as crimes of violence. Schools can take steps to plan and prepare to stop and even prevent these threats. Every school Emergency Operating Procedure (EOP) should include courses of action that will describe how students and staff can most effectively respond to an Active/Mass Shooter situation to minimize the loss of life, teach, and train on these practices.
