Spring 2019 Active Threat Seminar

On May 15, 2019, Atlantic Charter Insurance sponsored a free seminar for clients at the Westin Waltham – Boston Hotel. We had a large number of clients that attended from different industries including: home health and visiting nurse agencies, hospitals, food and durable goods manufacturing, and transportation/distribution companies. The main discussion points for the seminar included:

  • Recognizing signs of violence
  • De-escalation techniques
  • Active Threat/Shooter
  • Good decisions in fractions of a second
  • What to expect from responding law enforcement

All of the feedback we received was extremely positive! We wish to thank both Terry Choate and Joe Hileman of Blue-U Defense for the excellent program they delivered for our clients. For further information on Blue-U Defense, see

Here is what a few attendees had to say after the program.

I LOVED it!  I thought it was absolutely amazing.

Thanks for the opportunity to attend, they were both really good.  Definitely time well-spent, good suggestions, & something that so many others would benefit from.
