Lesson 3: Topic 4 of 9
An armed attacker in your building is one of the most frightening threats you’ll have to potentially deal with. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) advises in such cases that you run away if possible, hide if you can’t run, and fight if that’s the only option left to you.
Both FEMA and DHS offer Active Shooter preparedness training in the form of workshops, webinars, booklets, videos, and more. They can be found at the sites below. For FEMA resources, click the link, then type the words “active shooter” in the search bar.
