Emergency Planning

  • A CPR Plus More Emergency Plan  starts with a site survey and interviews for threat assessment. 
  • The plan and our training will get your staff ready.
  • CPR Plus More will recommend procedures for dealing with all common emergencies, including injuries, heart attacks, fires, tornadoes, and security threats. 
  • The plan may recommend equipment or building changes.
  • In security training, we offer this video, RUN. HIDE. FIGHT. Surviving an Active Shooter Event. Push arrow to view. It is six minutes long and has violence. A written summary is below the video screen.

Video Summary

Run

  • Take decisive action if you hear gunshots. Do not wait until others tell you to act.
  • Know your surroundings and have an escape route and plan in mind.
  • Run and call 911 when it is safe to do so. 
  • Help others if you can, but keep moving. 
  • When calling 911, be sure to provide an exact location. Do not assume a dispatcher knows where you are located.


Hide

  • If you cannot run, hide as a second option. 
  • You cannot hide in the open. Block vision. Under an office desk? Pull the desk chair in front of you.
  • Do not huddle together as it makes one easy target.
  • Lock doors. Use items to barricade them. 
  • Shut off lights.
  • Put your cell phone on silent and call 911. Do not speak loudly. 
  • Keep others calm around you. 

Fight

  • As a last resort, when running and hiding are not an option, fight when your life is in imminent danger. 
  • Assume a survival mindset and know that, oftentimes, active violence situations are over in a few minutes.
  • Find an object to use as a weapon: fire extinguisher, chair, book bag, letter opener, etc.
  • Develop a plan with others to take out a potential shooter, be decisive, and commit to action.
