Surviving an active shooter…


There’s a really good article over at Modern Combative Systems that covers surviving a workplace shooter.  They cover mostly the basics, but include things like awareness, preparedness, escape, etc.

They also cover things that you should have in a mini G.O.O.D. bag.  I highly suggest checking it out even if you don’t think you’re in an environment where you would be a victim, or even in a place where you think you’re safe…

In the wake of work place shootings, like the recent St Louis plant shooting, let’s take a look at some strategies on how to protect oneself in the workplace.  The first thing is to understand the Three A’s of safety and put them into practice.  This article is geared specifically to the workplace, but they can be applied to any location.

Awareness-   Constantly access the feeling and mood of your workplace.  Is there a specific person that makes you feel uncomfortable?  Does your workplace control access with ID badges?  Are they color coded and easy to identify, or are they small pictures with small writing that are hard to read?
