Without knowing the complete picture about the incident at Clackamas Shopping Center in Oregon, what can we learn?
It’s a reminder of the importance of being aware of your surroundings. People shouldn’t live in fear but instead think in terms of being prepared. Two things we should all consider anywhere we visit are: “where can I take shelter?” and “how do I get out of here?”
Think about it in terms of a “tornado” or a “fire”. If there’s a tornado, where can you take shelter or hide? What is a safe place to hide? If there’s a fire, where are the fire exits? How can you get out of the building quickly?
These two responses work for a wide variety of other situations as well, including an active shooter.
