How to Survive a Mass Shooting:

  • Run if a safe path is available. Always try to escape or evacuate, even if others insist on staying.
  • Encourage others to leave with you, but don't let the indecision of others slow down your own effort to escape.
  • Once you are out of the line of fire, try to prevent others from walking into the danger zone and call 911.
  • If you can't get out safely, find a place to hide.
  • When hiding, turn out lights, remember to lock doors and silence your ringer and vibration mode on your cell phone.
  • As a last resort, working together or alone, act with aggression, use improvised weapons and fight.
