Gap Training

Gap training is based on the gap of time when a shot is fired or the first injury is initiated on a school campus to when the police arrive, breach the facility and contact the suspect(s). The national average of this Gap time is 10-14 minutes due to current lock down procedures, delay in the 911 process, the assumption that someone else called 911, the availability of responding Law Enforcement, current active shooter training (or lack of training) for local Law Enforcement and unknown location of the shooter(s) once they arrive. The staff are the only ones in this Gap period that will be protecting the students until help arrives from the moment the first shot is fired but is the only group we don't train to effectively protect. This is why learning to properly fortify a room and also having the means to defend it if it were breached is imperative to the survival of students and staff.
