6 Things Your Children Must Know To Be Prepared For A School Shooting



3. Go to a Safe Area Where You Can Get Them

Once your children have recognized the threat and made their escape they need to connect with you.

Ideally, your child should escape to a location that has been pre-identified by you. Pick a couple of safe locations, ideally public areas that are some distance from the school. Instruct your child to flee to the safe area and call you to be picked up. Make the location far enough away from the school that it isn’t enclosed within the barricaded traffic perimeter. In the event of a shooting, police will shut down all the roads adjacent to the school. You’ll want your “safe place” far enough outside this perimeter that your access to it won’t be limited.

During an escape, your child needs to understand how to find or make the best cover.

    Great advice. ALICE training works for a reason, and it encompasses many of these points.

    While your description is molsty accurate, you neglect the thrill of a trigger that, when caressed with the gentlest of intention, goes “Bang!” Hell, my subconscious doesn’t even know when it’s gonna break.When I take first-timers to the range, the free pistol is the *last* thing we shoot, and I show them how light the trigger is, everyone makes it go “click” (on an empty chamber) the first three “shots” I make them dry-fire and, even then, a good portion of the first shots go into the dirt before the sights come onto the target.It’s a fabulous reinforcement to Rule #3, “Keep your finger *OFF* the trigger till your sights are on the target.”The only way to keep it from being boring (when shooting) is to have a shot plan so meticulous that it keeps your mind engaged until those few seconds of silence “in the aiming area”…. … Bang!
