Run, Hide, Fight
A hostile intruder situation can change rapidly. In addition to being aware of your surroundings and escape routes, thinking about how you will react to a hostile intruder situation in advance will help you act quickly and efficiently.

WHAT IF Thinking: Thinking through scenarios in your head can help you respond faster. Take time to understand your surroundings and environment, and then make a plan. During an active shooter or hostile intruder event, there are three choices an individual can make: Run. Hide. Fight.
