Security Training Puts Preparedness Over Panic
DALLAS, Texas (KTVT) -- The Navy Yard shooting reminds us again that danger is something that usually finds you.
Still, experts say the far more likely threat is closer to home, a fire or injury. KTVT's Robbie Owens visited a north Texas company that's training clients, regardless of the situation, to choose preparedness over panic.
Chances are, these Dallas dads will never need to know how to react to an armed gunman. But, the sobering news of the day reinforces their decision to take no chances.
Russell Gum asks, "What would happen if someone breaks into our house right now? What would you do? What's the plan? It really caused me to pause and think, I don't know what the plan is."
So they got a plan and perfected it with military trained security coaches at Trident Response Group.
Clint Bruce, President of Trident Response Group says, "Fear is this impulse that says something is not right, but, after that you really only have two choices: you have afraid, and you have ready. we choose ready."
Company President Clint Bruce, a former special operations officer, says his coaches train everyone from soccer moms and dads, to CEOs and security forces.
The intensity will vary but, the basic message is the same.
Trident's training space can be easily configured to resemble a corporate office, a client's home, even a school. Because they say, in a crisis, even familiar places become confusing.
Business owner Jeff Wilson says the training left him feeling more confident.
