A CPR Plus More Emergency Plan starts with a site survey and interviews for threat assessment.
The emergency plan will be your procedure manual to handle injuries, heart attacks, fires, tornadoes, and security threats.
The plan may recommend equipment or building changes.
Training goes with the plan. In the security part, we offer the video below: RUN. HIDE. FIGHT. Surviving an Active Shooter Event. Push arrow to view. It is six minutes long and has violence. A summary is below the screen.
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.
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.
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.
