Today I want to talk to you about how to tactically respond to a mass attack.
Now when I say mass attack, I mean an active shooter event, mass stabbing, IED explosion, or combination thereof.
Coming off the Thanksgiving Day weekend, we saw three mass attacks in the West alone. One at the London Bridge, where an alleged jihadist killed two and wounded three others with a knife; another stabbing in the Netherlands, and an active shooter event in New Orleans.
As security-minded citizens, we know these threats exist and it's our responsibility to be prepared so we can protect ourselves and others. So where do we start?
I'm sure you're familiar with the "Run, Hide, Fight" mantra put out by DHS and other organizations. It's a good start, but like most training out today, it tends to focus on an individual's response. But what if you're with a group when the attack occurs? What if you're with family members or people who aren't trained or as aware as you? How do you manage that?
If that's got you wondering, then this post is for you.
