No one wants to think about impending danger, but it is essential to know that active violence can happen anywhere to anyone, so it’s important to be prepared. When you enter a building, mark the exits, and have a quick exit plan in your mind. Also, be aware of the people around you and note any unusual behaviour.
Your response to an active shooting incident will determine whether you can safely escape the site and the action you should take to protect yourself and others. It is always important to try to escape, but if that’s not possible, the second option is to hide.
You will also learn the mistakes to avoid, such as carrying your belongings when fleeing, which endangers lives.
Actions taken during an active shooting incident can significantly determine the number of lives lost. The most critical step is to stop the bleeding of those injured, before the victim bleeds to death.. As healthcare professionals will know, every minute counts when dealing with bleeding.
A single individual’s action can go a long way in preventing death through blood loss. If you take the training, you will learn how to take charge of an active shooting scenario and gain the confidence you need to react quickly.
