Survival Mindset Components (Cont.)  Preparation  Looking at your school environment through the lens of survival  “What if” questions are critical in developing effective response strategies  Survivors prepare themselves both mentally and emotionally to do whatever it takes to survive  Rehearsal  Mentally or physically practicing your plan  Will reduce response time and build confidence  A survival inoculation

  14. 14. Realities  Threats are almost always present  Leakage, warnings made through comments (intentional or unintentional) can reveal clues to feelings, thoughts, fantasies, or intentions that may result in violence  Erratic/abnormal behavior is a principle warning sign of future violence  Bullying is often a stepping stone to violence  The path toward violence, is an evolutionary one with signs posted along the way (indicators)

  21. 21.  Get Out (Run)  Move quickly; don’t wait for others to validate your decision  Leave belongings behind  Survival chances increase if you are not where shooter is or go where he can’t see you  Call Out  Inform authorities  Call 9-1-1 and tell them the name of shooter (if known), shooter description, location, number and type of weapons
  22. 22.  Hide Out  May not be able to get out  Shooter between you and the only exit  Would have to enter area where shooter is positioned  Hiding place • Well hidden and well protected • Avoid places that might trap you or restrict movement

  24. 24.  Spread Out  If two or more of you, DO NOT huddle together; gives you options and makes it harder for the shooter  Quietly develop a plan of action in the event the shooter enters  Remain calm  Can have a contagious effect on others  Keeps others focused on survival
  25. 25.  Take Out (LAST RESORT)  Assume shooter’s intentions are lethal  Shooter will succeed in shooting all those with whom he comes in contact, UNLESS you stop him  Develop a survival mindset that you have “what it takes” to survive when your life is on the line  You must be prepared to do whatever it takes to neutralize the threat  Throw things, yell, use improvised weapons  If two or more of you, make a plan to overcome the shooter  Do the best that you can—choose to survive

  27. 27.  Be observant of the environment you are traveling, fall back on your First Observer Training. ◦ Situational Awareness ◦ Safety and Security Plans ◦ Fall back on your training to react (think quickly)  If you see something that is not right, (guy with a gun) don’t stop, continue to drive pass the stop and call dispatch/authorities with your observations.  If you have already stopped and something happens, Remember to “KEEP CALM”  We have LIMITED options in the confined space on the bus
