OTOA 2018 Conference
Range Safety Expectations
The four firearms safety rules will be briefed prior to training, and will be enforced by instructors and OTOA range staff.
Steel target minimum engagement distances are as follows:
- Pistol: 15 Yards
- Carbine: 50 Yards
- Precision Rifle: 50 Yards
The OTOA Site Coordinator will be inspecting all target configurations, and will be the Go / No Go authority for the assumption of live fire activities. Both the OTOA Site Coordinator and OTOA Course Moderators have the authority to cease training if they observe a safety issue, and may direct changes to target configurations.
Marking Cartridge Safety
Best-practices safety measures will be in place for all marking cartridge training, whether the training is force on force or SIMS on paper.
All injuries requiring medical treatment of any kind, including on site medic care, will be immediately reported to the OTOA Site Coordinator, who will notify the OTOA Conference Training Office. The Training Office will assign an investigator, and the injury will be investigated as a Line of Duty Injury.
