FEMA Course

The school I go to recently put the above free active shooter "course" up on the website.

Some highlights:
3. Take action against the active shooter
As a last resort, and only when your life is in imminent danger, attempt to
disrupt and/or incapacitate the active shooter by:
• Acting as aggressively as possible against him/her
• Throwing items and improvising weapons
• Committing to your actions
Emphasis mine.

FALSE: In the case of an active shooter, there will be sufficient time for law enforcement to take control of the situation.

Explanation: Because most incidents last only 15 to 20 minutes, individuals at the scene must be prepared to deal with the situation until law enforcement personnel arrive. prepared to deal with the yelling at the guy with the gun(s).
