How to Survive An Active Shooter
Here are the options for you when you get involved in a terrorist attack. You can choose from three ways to deal with the situation: to run, hide or fight.
If there is an escape path, attempt to evacuate.
Evacuate whether others agree or not.
Leave your belongings behind.
Help others escape if possible.
Prevent others from entering the area.
Call 911 when you are safe.
Lock and/or blockade the door.
Silence your cellphone.
Hide behind large objects.
Remain very quiet.
Remember that your hiding place should be out of the shooter’s view, provide protection if shots are fired in your direction, and not trap or restrict your options for movement.
Attempt to incapacitate the shooter.
Act with physical aggression.
Commit to your actions.
It is crucial to stay calm in case of a terrorist attack. Whatever you do and whichever option you choose, do not panic. Your state of mind can spell the difference between coming out alive and making fatal mistakes.
With this mindset, you have a much better likelihood of survival… But panic easily sets in and a riot can break out in a moments notice… This could be a death sentence in a crowded urban area.
