OSU student credits training ARMADA developed with his calm response in campus attack

Ohio State University student Bobby Fair credits training he received in the U.S. Marine Corps with teaching him how to respond safely and protect fellow students’ lives when he was in the classroom on the day a terrorist attack happened on campus in Columbus, Ohio. ARMADA developed the training that Fair and more than 200,000 people have received.

Fair sat down with ARMADA CEO Tom Foos and described the events of the day as part of a new training video Armada is producing.

Fair received the training in 2013 while on active duty. The 25-year old says the training taught him key actions to take that allowed him to step up and take charge.

ARMADA developed the training curriculum for the Marine Corps’ violence prevention program, and Fair recommends that all organizations can benefit from training on how to respond in a crisis.

“Bobby’s actions were part of a total response to a violent attack,” CEO Foos said. “Knowing what to do and how to respond in a crisis can save lives.”
