After the shooting in Orlando, my sister sent me an email about actions to take if there is someone firing rounds at people.
So I’m passing part of her email along. I hope you take the time to watch the two videos.
And I pray that you never need to use the information. (Except in fiction books)
In 2015, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) released a video, titled “Surviving an Active Shooter”, depicting three scripted Active Shooter incidents. This excellent video, just over 9 minutes long, depicts an Active Shooter incident in a workplace, a shopping mall food court, and on a college campus. The LASD video shows the viewer what they should and should not do to increase their chances of surviving an Active Shooter.The LASD Active Shooter video can be viewed at the below link.
