  • Surviving an Active Shooter Event

    RUN. HIDE. FIGHT. is a video produced by City of Houston Mayor's Office of Public Safety and Homeland Security. Be aware of your surroundings and have a plan. You should always know the exit routes, even in a motel/hotel in case of fire.

    I made this summary for those who can't watch vids:

    HIDE: if evacuation is not possible, find a place to hide
    > Lock and/or blockade the door.
    > Silence your cell phone
    > Hide behind very large objects.
    > Remain very quiet and calm.

    Your hiding place should:
    > Be out of the shooter's view.
    >Provide protection if shots are fired in your direction.
    > Not trap or restrict your options for movement.

    FIGHT: as a last resort and only if your life is in danger.
    > Attempt to incapacitate the shooter
    > Act with physical aggression
    > Improvise weapons
    > Commit to your actions... no matter what.

    911: When Law Enforcement Arrives
    > Remain calm and follow instructions.
    > Keep your hands visible at all times.
    > Avoid pointing or yelling
    > Know that help for the injured is on its way.
