Active threat situations are occurring across society and culture. Schools, places of worship, concerts, night clubs, malls, theaters, public roadways and places of business have all been effected by mass casualty shootings, bombings, natural disasters and more. In these tense situations chaos fills the atmosphere and first responders are frantically sought out to return order. Before trained help arrives, situations are deteriorating and preventable deaths are occurring.
