With the recent San Bernardino mass shooting at a holiday work party, we felt it would be prudent to discuss some recommendations if you put into such a terrible situation. With the holiday work party season kicking into full gear, people are fearful of similar incidents.
Flee: If possible, clear the building as soon as possible. Know where exits are located.
Hide: Find a hiding place where you are out of view and stay put
Fight: If you are unable to hide or flee the area, and it is truly a life-or-death situation, you may be forced to fight for your life. Learn unarmed self-defense. Some states allow open-carry firearms, while others completely ban carrying weapons, concealed or not. Research your states’ laws to better understand your rights when you are being attacked.
