Workshops, Presentations and Seminar Topics

  • Active Shooter Seminar:
    Those who attend will have a better understanding of how to define and identify an active shooter in various societal settings. Through the use of case studies, shared professional experiences, and other documented sources, audience members will gain a greater knowledge in historical tactical situations directly relating to the dealings and outcomes of active shooter scenarios. In defining crisis management as it directly correlates with active shooters, law enforcement personnel will gain a well-rounded skill set necessary to coordinate, educate, and train with local schools and businesses in an effort to prevent, react, and recover from future incidents.
  • Policing America's Streets:
  • Those who attend will have a better understanding of how to identify, define, and combat domestic and international terrorism occurring in the United States. Through the use of case studies, shared professional experiences, and other documented sources, audience members will gain a greater knowledge in collecting and applying intelligence, understanding the differences between terroristic acts and acts of terrorism, and historical tactical situations directly relating to the dealings and outcomes of active shooter scenarios. Furthermore, participants will obtain ideas on training methods conducive to more effective outcomes relating to psychological impacts of combating female terrorists and certain labels given to terrorists. In defining crisis management as it directly correlates with first responders, key leaders and supervisors will gain a well-rounded skill set necessary to coordinate, educate, and train their organization in dealing with the trauma experienced during a terrorist incident.
  • Understand The Threat: 21st Century Terrorism:
    Those who attend will have a better understanding of our newest enemies in the War on Terror and currently the greatest threat to our homeland. Audience members will gain a greater knowledge in the al-Qaeda movement towards recruiting and waging jihad against the United States and other Western countries per Usama bin Laden's second fatwa issued in February 1998, declaring a holy war, or jihad, against the West and Israel. Furthermore, participants will have an opportunity to discuss the recruitment of Americans into terrorist organizations as they continue to operate within our nation's borders in preparation for their next attack.
  • Vulnerability Assessments:
    Government and military organizations have focused much attention on risk management and vulnerability assessments during the past few years, while the civilian sector has largely relied on the Department of Homeland Security to provide guidance, expertise, and resources to help in the fight against terrorism. Extreme Terrorism Consulting, LLC has developed a focused and user-friendly vulnerability assessment program designed for law enforcement officers and other first responders. This program will address the history and relevance of terrorism in our local communities and teach organizations methods of conducting risk assessments in their areas of responsibility. Seminar participants will be provided with and instructed on how to use well established and validated tools to determine the threat to assets in their community. XTC will also show the organizations how to develop a plan with an allhazards approach towards these assets and an emphasis on crisis management following the National Incident Management System (NIMS). Finally, XTC will work with organizations to develop a pertinent and useful outreach program designed to educate and involve members of the community in our Nation's fight against terrorism.
