After Tuesday’s active shooter incident at the West Omaha Target, we are thankful for the swift action of the Omaha Police Department and first responders to resolve this emergency situation before it escalated, ensuring the safety of all retail guests and employees at the scene. As a result of this terrifying incident, we understand that individuals not trained to deal with such situations can be left feeling helpless, fearful, and anxious about going to public places. To assist in restoring confidence to those individuals, or individuals who are experiencing similar anxiety, we are offering a series of free training seminars as a service to our community. Regardless of previous training or experience level, we can help individuals discover their confidence and develop their skills responding in an emergency situation.
“For the last 26 years, I’ve had a view from the front lines of our fight against violent crime and gun violence,” says Douglas County Sheriff, Aaron Hanson. “Too often the actions of violent criminals hurt not only innocent people but also the valued reputations of responsible, law-abiding gun owners. It’s also a sad reality that the actions of untrained or careless gun owners can likewise have a significant negative impact and capitalized on by the anti-gunners. I highly recommend bringing your family and friends to this valuable training event. Ask them to sign up and participate in this potentially lifesaving training.”
88 Tactical is proud to be a trusted community resource and is dedicated to recruiting and retaining the industry’s most experienced instructor cadre from the special operations military, law enforcement, and fire and rescue. Students get the opportunity to learn techniques from instructors with first responder experience and who are well equipped to help them develop their confidence and ability to deal with any situation or crisis.
“What’s great about 88 Tactical is it’s a safe place for everyone to be,” explains Aaron Hanson. “If you’re a police officer, if you’re military, if you’re a law-abiding gun owner that loves your Second Amendment rights, it’s a great, positive, diverse environment.”
