- What can you do? Learn how to Stop the Bleed, & help your people learn. Hemorrhaging / bleeding out can happen in these scenarios where people have to wait for help. ? You can learn what to do to save a life.
- What else? Talk with your family about how to communicate in such an emergency. Text messages are the lowest bandwidth when the cell signals are overloaded. Talk about how to respond in such a scenario. Thinking through an emergency before it happens helps us not freeze up when we're in one.
- In addition to first responders training for interagency response to an #ActiveShooter incident, there are plans + specific considerations for incidents at commercial facilities. Commercial Facilities is one of 17 critical infrastructure sectors set up after 9/11. This work is not *run* by DHS. Rather, this is a "public private partnership" to improve security & resilience in the places we live.
