Run, Hide, Fight: Surviving an Active Shooter Event

If you ever find yourself in a situation with an active shooter, you need to know how to react before law enforcement arrives. Your survival may depend on whether or not you have a plan.

There are three things you can do that can make a difference: run, hide, or fight.  If there is an escape path, you should always make an attempt to evacuate. If not, find a place to hide and stay quiet. As a last resort, and only if your life is at risk, fight to take down the shooter.
