On November 24th 2022 at 2018hrs a call for service was received, initially, as a verbal disturbance. By 2020hrs it had turned into a shooting and a victim was on the ground. As I approached the call and the details of the shooting were transmitted I noticed that my heartrate and breathing were elevated and my vehicle had entered pursuit mode. At one point during my nearly 5-minute response I had to remember to manually control my breathing and tell myself ‘’I’m no good to anyone if I don’t get there.’’ It was also around this point I realized I was going to be the first responder on scene, and back-up was NOT around the corner. I would arrive on scene at 8:24:22pm and the first backup Deputy would arrive at 08:31:27pm with the first Medic on scene at 08:31:43pm. I was alone for 7 minutes and 5 seconds.
As I approached the scene I remembered dispatch relayed the shooter had fled however, my first priority was scene safety before I could get to the victim.

This was one of the most interactive, real world courses I have taken. The instructors were not only informative but patient with students. I can’t wait to bring SilverBack in for our next training. Thank You!
Troy, you and your team went above and beyond to host us from Wisconsin. Every single member of every department that participated would be welcome to be on our newly forming RTF team here in Monona. Great people and great training lead to great outcomes for all (casualties and first responders).
Excellent training on stimulating the response to scenarios. Elevated heart rate and allowed for multi agency interaction
The in depth coverage of material followed by repetition of hands on is unlike anything else out there. You will come more knowledge, better equipped with tools to handle stress, and overall- “more gooder”
I've attended several LEO grainings throughout my career, including tactical only courses and this was by far the best course. The instructors, actors, scenarios and material were fantastic. I hope to attend this again in the future for a refresher.
This training was above all expectations. I truly look up to all of you instructors as role models now. Your backgrounds and experience are incredible and it shows in how you conduct your business. I learned a ton of new skills and also a lot about myself during this training. Thank you for all the hard work and passion you all put into this training. I hope to be apart of another one in the future!
After the training, I went through my gear and am reworking my IFAKS so that I have one attached to my go bag for victims as well as a separate one on my vest to be used on myself/partner. After working with your Protector II IFAK, I haven't been able to find an IFAK that I like more. Thanks for your time and looking forward to the opportunity to train with you guys again.
