How to survive a shooting at your office: Run. Hide. Fight.

How to survive an office shooting: Run. Hide. Fight.: With all the tragic acts of violence that have happened in the last 12 months, I can’t understate the importance of knowing how to respond when a violent situation erupts at the place where you spend much of your day; work. If you hear gunfire in your building or sense something dangerous your first act should be to run. Call 911 when you’re safe. If that isn’t an option, hide. If the worst happens and you’re confronted with the assailant, fight using whatever means or weapons you have available. Watch the six minute video for a quick overview of how to respond. Knowing your building’s exit routes and having a plan could save your life in the event of a terrible event like what happened today at the Navy Yard, last December at Sandy Hook Elementary,  last July in Aurora Colorado, or February 2012 at Chardon High School.
