• Be aware of your environment and any possible dangers
• Take note of the two nearest exits in any facility you visit

• If you are in a hallway, get into a room and secure the door
• As a last resort, attempt to take the active shooter down. When the shooter is at close range and you cannot flee, your chance of survival is much greater if you try to incapacitate him/her.
