SURVIVING AN ACTIVE SHOOTER - GET OUT - SECURE - DEFEND
Active Shooter events like those at the Country Music Fest Las Vegas on October1, 2017, or others like Aurora, Colorado, at Sandy Hook Elementary School, at Virginia Tech, and the at Grand Theater in Lafayette, Louisiana are occurring with increasing frequency throughout the United States.
Although the odds of being involved in such an event are low, the sudden, catastrophic nature of these attacks requires that individuals, schools, workplaces, and public areas think about how to respond.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has created this video to help people answer the question "What would you do?"
If you have to immediately exit a location, how can you do so safely?
If you cannot get outside and away from the threat, how can you secure yourself and those with you against attack?
If you must confront your attacker, how can you do it in a way that gives you the best chance of success?
