By | Safety Tips

Here are some tips for if you ever find yourself in a situation where your life & safety are being threatened. Share with your friends and family so you can be prepared!

When in a public venue or at a public event…
  • Observe the exits, where they are, and how to get to them if needed.
  • If you hear loud pops or gunfire, find cover not concealment. Meaning, find something to hide behind or under that a bullet can not penetrate.
  • When hiding, do not draw attention to yourself. Other than staying quiet yourself, be sure to silence your phone & wipe off cologne or perfume.
  • Lastly, you need to remain quiet until police come and give the all clear. They will announce themselves in their search for you.
