Ep 079 - Surviving an Active Shooter Assault

It's pretty hard to “Attack Life” if you're living in fear and anxiety because of extreme violence which seemingly is becoming more prevalent. The US Department of Homeland Security's official recommendation is to “Run, Hide, Fight.” Timothy Spiess, retired Senior Special Agent with the US Secret Service joins us to break that down even further.

There are no guarantees, but here are some practical and tactical things you can do to increase your chances of surviving an assault by an active shooter:

  • Immediately crouch down

  • Seek cover or concealment as quickly as possible

  • If possible, move laterally to the shooter(s) and work your way back to where they have been — typically they don’t return to the entrance or area they came from

  • As a last resort — or the opportunity arises and you feel you’re able to safely attack and neutralize the shooter — commit using any available means and extreme aggression

Most importantly, work on becoming more aware. Eliminate distractions. Get rid of the noise. Having more awareness won’t just make you safer — it will enhance your life in so many ways.
