Coping with an Active Shooter Situation

Don’t go after the shooter.   If you are in an office [or classroom], stay there and secure the door.  If you are in a hallway, get into a room and secure the door

  • Hide behind large items (i.e., cabinets, desks)
  • Remain quiet.  Remain calm.   
  • When he come to you.  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  incapacitate him/her with a shooter spray

23 church shootings for every school shooting last year




On June 5, 2014 an armed man entered a building at Seattle Pacific University outside Seattle, Washington and opened fire, injuring three people and killing one. Unbeknownst to the shooter, Jon Meis, a student and volunteer building monitor, was also there that day. Jon was carrying a canister of pepper spray and he deployed it at the shooter when he stopped to reload his gun. The pepper spray disabled the shooter long enough for Jon and a group of fellow students to tackle and restrain him until police arrived. Jon’s courage and use of pepper spray likely saved lives that day. His actions certainly stopped the violence, and allowed safety forces to apprehend the assailant. Jon Meis’ deployment of a small canister of pepper spray helped stop a violent attack, showing that OC products, such as the Sabre Red™ pepper gel in Safe Zone CM™, can play a role in disrupting violent events   


 Your home should be a sanctuary for you and your family. Unfortunately, more than 1.5 million burglaries take place each year in the U.S., according to FBI statistics, and about 70 percent of them are residential burglaries. The majority involve forcible entry. This meansthat it pays to be vigilant even when you’re in your house. If someone is home when an intruder strikes, he or she likely won’t have time to think of a plan on the spot. That’s why it’s important to have a preemptive plan of action.                                                                                                                                                                                            


One of the best ways to be prepared for an active shooter situation is to go through active shooter training. …  A Shooter may be armed with rifles, shotguns, handguns; Officers may use pepper spray or tear gas to control the situation; You can also!!!
