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

5. Avoid the Police

As counter intuitive as this sounds, running to the police in an active shooter situation is dangerous for both your child and the police.

Make sure your child knows not to run to the police for safety. The police are often the ones drawing gunfire from the shooter(s). There have also been shootings (Norway is one example) where the shooters have impersonated police officers… Don’t allow your child to force a police officer to make a decision between protecting a single child and going after the shooter. The officer must stop the shooter. He may be the only one nearby capable of accomplishing that task. Ensure that your child isn’t the one who distracts the officer from his primary objective.

One more vital thing to share with your kids.

    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!
