PrepperCon Radio Episode 25, 03 23 16 How to be prepared for Active Shooter and Terrorist Events

Being prepared for an active shooter or terrorists event takes the same mindset as a parent at the swimming pool with their kids.  For me that means a heighten sense of awareness and some specific tools for the situation.  When you travel or are just 'out and about', situational awareness is your first line of defense.  This takes knowledge of what the risks are and lots of practice observing.  So, you'd better get started.

Keep your eyes open and be observant.
Know all of your exits.
Discuss and develop a plan.
Follow your gut instincts.
Run, hide, fight... then help.
Evaluate and modify your EDC items/kit.  Keep it with you.
Is your EDC trauma specific?  (Tourniquet, trauma bandages, etc.)
Do you have the knowledge and training to help?
Have you made critical decisions before you become part of a critical situation?
Stay Calm!  Use you head  
Stay away from crowds.
Listen to the radio, watch the news for current info.
Decide how you will respond.





Some specific recommended gear:

1.  Tactical flashlight (200 lumens min.)
2.  Trauma First Aid Kit. (tourniquet(s), trauma dressings, clotting agent)
3.  Pocket Knife.
4.  Firearm
5.  Back-up Gun (BUG)
6.  N95 (or better) masks/respirator
7.  Leather gloves
8.  Cell Phone / Radio
9.  Cash
10.  Hand sanitizer
11.  Latex gloves
12.  Appropriate clothing and footwear.
