Israeli Tactical Training: Prevention, Response, Recovery
IMI Florida Academy, the US subsidiary of Israel’s IMI Academy for Advanced Security and Anti-Terror Training, is bringing a three-day seminar, “Israeli Tactical Training: Prevention, Response, and Recovery,” to the Smoky Mountains region October 11 – 13, at the Brasstown, NC Community Center. The Academy trains civilians and law enforcement throughout the US. The seminar will be led by Haim Geri, an Israeli and US Citizen with decades of experience in fighting terrorism. Geri served as an officer in the Israeli Defense Forces, an Air Marshall for El Al Airlines, and in the Israel General Security Service, providing security for Israeli embassies and assets worldwide. He is currently Director of Academic & Professional Development and Senior Firearms Instructor in the Florida and Israeli Academies, respectively. In the three-day seminar, participants will gain insight into how the Israelis have been so successful in preventing both large-scale and individual terror attacks, learn and practice Israeli response tactics used to stop active threats, and understand the need to survive and recover from such attacks. Tactical shooting practice will take place at a nearby private range in Brasstown. Breakfast snacks and light lunches are included every day. Seminar graduates will receive certificates from Israel’s IMI Academy. Seminar capacity is 16 students, so call Dr. George Gaines at 404.918.7098 for questions and registration, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Gaines is a full-time resident of Murphy and serves as Director of Open Enrollment for the Academy.
