Unfortunately, the tragedy in Parkland, Florida this week, reminds us all of the need to be prepared to deal with the possibility of confronting an active shooter situation. To manage any situation, we know that being prepared and ready to respond appropriately are good practices.
Those of us trained for an active shooter know the steps to take to protect ourself if an active shooter is in the vicinity:
The City of Houston, Texas Mayor's Office of Public Safety, and Homeland Security produced the video “Run. Hide. Fight.® Surviving an Active Shooter Event.” The video helps you understand what you should and should not do in the event you are confronted by an active shooter. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC DEPICTIONS OF VIOLENT ACTS AND MAY BE DISTURBING OR UNSETTLING TO SOME VIEWERS.
