Surviving an Active Shooter Event
An active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area. Such situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Because active shooter situations are often over in 10 to 15 minutes and before law enforcement arrives on scene, individuals must be mentally and physically prepared to deal with such a situation. The following video is intended to inform viewers about the options they have if confronted with an active shooter situation. It is not intended to be all encompassing or address every situation.
