Michael Julian publishes book, "10 Minutes to Live," about how to survive an active shooter incident using his "ALIVE" method.

MURRIETA – Security industry expert Michael Julian of MPS Security releases a life-saving book, "10 Minutes to Live," which shares how essential the appropriate actions taken in the first 10 minutes of an active shooter event can be for survival when every second counts to stay alive.

"10 Minutes to Live" provides simple tools to help in an active shooter scenario. Julian's book discusses how to prepare in advance using a security mindset and fighting through individual fears in survival mode to evaluate the situation and react appropriately.

Some companies are putting their employees through training sessions, teaching them how to react in active shooter incidents. Southern California resident Liz Moreno, a survivor of the Las Vegas Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting incident, said she believes the training she had years before with Julian is what ultimately saved her life.

"Instantly I remembered the "ALIVE" active shooter class that I had taken at my job about three years ago, which I had never even thought about until that instant and I just knew that we had to run," Moreno said.

Julian creates and hosts regular active shooter survival training workshops called ALIVE, which stands for "Assess, Leave, Impede, Violence and Expose." He coaches employees at utility agencies, medical facilities, schools and businesses throughout the United States. His next ALIVE workshop will be Tuesday, Feb. 20, at MPS Security in Murrieta. Those who register for this training will receive an autographed copy of "10 Minutes to Live." Register at

Julian also hosts a real estate agent safety class. The first hour is dedicated to active shooter survival, and the second hour is dedicated to specific real estate agent safety. The next real estate agent safety class will be Monday, March 12, at the Murrieta Southwest Riverside County Association of Realtors.
