  17. General Active Threat Assailant Mindset Usually differs from Mass Shooters who are detailed planners General Assailants Usually Snap decision maker- triggered by someone or something Food order wrong, late, car driving too slow, lane cut-off, masks, vaccine status, politics, money, drugs, food Person s actions, facial expression, finger, sarcastic joke, embarrasses the person . Disciplined at work, bullied, terminated 17

  18. Most People Are Already Stressed Out and On-Edge About Something and Can Be Easily Triggered Not that they will become an active threat necessarily, but may more easily loose their temper, control and be upset Airline travel examples- flight attendant attacks, cancelled flights, delayed flights- normal people are now more easily triggered- road ragers My example- Cancun Mexico trip 18

  26. 26

  27. RUN-(CRAWL?) 27

  28. Review Your response needs to be immediate! Don t have a meeting and question shots fired Don t pull fire alarm Be moving- moving targets are hard to hit Don t scream- identifies location- hunting Yell for help and instruct others when fighting assailant or they will do what? Don t Open Doors immediately if they say police open up wait for sirens, etc. 28

  29. Doors? How does the door open to my office or areas I frequent, in or out? Is there a door? Inward opening best for securing, barricading! 29

  30. HIDE- Shelter in Place Is there an area or room that you can barricade yourself inside? How can you secure the door? What can you use as barricade materials? Is there a way out? NEVER stay behind the door! Many active shooters shoot at closed doors, especially if they can t get in! Where is the Safest place in a Room? 30

  31. RUN-HIDE Tips Belts can be used to hold doors shut, sit to the side of door. Look for a weapon scissors, stapler, fire extinguisher, hammer, paperweight, metal pen, heavy object? What can be used as a SHIELD? Metal desks, etc. Lights out, cover windows, phone on silent Is there another way out of the secure room? Are ALL doors barricaded? 31

  32. Hide- Timed Thought Drill and Room Analysis How long to get to a secure room- walking ? Door open in or out? Lockable? Barricade materials? Can I move them? Time to build barricade? Alternate way out of room? Windows hard to break! Improvised weapons available? Shield materials available? 32

  33. Barricade Tips Make it fast! Try to do it in a drill! Stand tables on end in front of door, support with other furniture, make high barricade Lay furniture with wheels on their side See if you can move barricade materials beforehand Barricade all doors, cover windows Sit with weapon ready to fight if door breached, phone for help? 33

  36. RUN-HIDE Tips As soon as you hear shots- take action! Seconds count! Incidents 30 sec to 5 Minutes total Further from gunman, better chances of survival You can crawl too! Believe you will survive! 36

  37. Review- RUN, HIDE Act as soon as you hear gunshots!!!! You have options- decide to run or hide- If running don t stop! Keep Moving even when outside- sniper! When hiding lock door, build barricade, cover windows, stay away from door, shield yourself, get a weapon, is there another way out, phone silenced 37

  46. What about grocery store, restaurant, other stores, coffee shop, sports events? Be alert to your surroundings! Entryway, exits! 46
