Training in Mass Shooting Threat Saved Woman’s Life in Las Vegas

Liz Moreno, one of the survivors of the Las Vegas Shooting, relates how the training she received about how to survive a mass shooting may have saved her life.  Are you prepared to handle a mass shooting situation?  Are you prepared to survive this type of threat?

“We turned around and I saw a lady behind us was shot in the face,” said Moreno. “And then I told my boyfriend, as soon as this stops, I’m running, we need to get out of here.”

Fifty-eight people were killed and hundreds more injured in the deadliest mass shooting committed by one person in U.S. history. But Moreno and her boyfriend were able to get out unharmed. Moreno credits an active shooter survival training class she attended a couple of years ago.

“I never thought I would use it,” she said. “It just came back.”

Moreno said the class was given to her coworkers in Murrieta. She said she really didn’t give it much thought over the past couple years. Some of what she learned in that class came right back to her.

“Even if you don’t process all of it, it’s going to be in your brain,” said Moreno. “And if three years down the road, it’s in there, and it came back, and I’ll help you.”

The class was taught by Michael Julian, who is also a private investigator and security specialist. It’s called the A.L.I.V.E. Active Shooter Survival program.
