You’re in the middle of eating a full lunch, including a delectable pastry for dessert, at the office and a loud boom rings throughout the hall. Who could be setting off fireworks at three in the afternoon? You reach for a napkin to clean up but not before an armed man charges in with his weapon pointed directly at you. This man is called an active shooter, or a person determined on killing as many people as they can in a populated area. Despite all instincts to run, Todd Caron of the Active Shooter Training Program supplied numerous other life-saving techniques to the JLA Class of 24. Let’s go back to the initial shots. Instead of assuming the norm, collaborate with your fellow persons to prepare for a genuine threat. Organize a barricade or even lift a few tables to block the assailant's path in order to control his movements. If possible, turn off the lights to impair his vision. And most importantly if there is no way out, then stay calm and prepare to fight. So, you set up a few tables. Your coworker agrees to go for the knees if you grab the gun. Perfect. The man charges in, weapon held in both hands, and you bear hug his arms to point the gun away from the other three concealed associates. Grabbing and firmly holding the sliding mechanism, you prevent another shot from going off as the aggressor is tackled at the knees and lands beneath you. Officers barge in, pulling you away as you slide the gun out of the man’s reach. With hands defensively in the air, you watch the man with previous authority over your life be handcuffed and removed from the building. What will the man’s fate be? He may very well be temporarily held at the Anderson County Detention Center awaiting a trial decision. With nearly 450 prisoners in a structure intended to hold about 250, it isn’t uncommon for cells to hold up to 17 men each. Built in 1956, the kitchens, laundry room, and garden work are influenced by the work of inmates attempting to decrease their sentence through “work credit”. The building right next door was designed and constructed by the most talented of those inmates. Overall, you and your companions are safe thanks to Anderson’s astonishing police forth, having Chad McBride himself as their tremendous trailblazer. Thank you from the community of Anderson for the security of our everyday lives.
