Active Shooter Training - Shared screen with speaker view

Some typical profiles of shooters for everyone (from Vice, 2019): K-12 shooters: white males, often students or former students of the school. Suicidal, extensive planning, and typically steal multiple guns from family members. History of trauma. College shooters: non-white males who are current students. Suicidal, with a history of violence. Use legally obtained guns, and leave behind a manifesto. Workplace shooters: 40-something males with no specific racial profile. Usually current employees, blue-collar workers with a grievance. Use legally obtained guns. Shooters at commercial locations: 30-something white males. History of violence and a criminal record. No connection to the location, and use legally obtained guns. Roughly one third have some form of schizophrenia, paranoia, delusions, etc.
I went through a training once before where it was mentioned that commercial building glass can be broken, but only if you hit it at the corners. Is that your experience as well?
Rick mentioned about can’t shoot through front of window. (Shoot from sides) Are there other things he sees, maybe on TV where they get it wrong?
Officer Rick mentioned taking 4 mins to steady your breath / heart rate, and setting aside emotions. What other methods would you recommend to overcome fear?
Similar to the TV question, what to media outlets tend to get wrong about active shooter situations?
Is there any specific training you've given to companies to be better prepared to handle a situation? For example, putting a panic alarm button with the receptionist and code word to put over the PA for employees to know there is a threat. Any other tips?
This has been an excellent, excellent talk. Thank you so much, Rick. And thank you Buckeye Crime Writers for inviting us.
