Mass Shooting Survival Video: Would You Know What To Do?

Shootings in Colorado, Wisconsin and now near Texas A&M are fresh reminders of the dangers of mass shootings.

Based on recent current events around the nation involving active shooter incidents, St. Louis County Police Department has added a link to a YouTube video on its website in an effort to provide guidance for those who might find themselves in the middle of a life-threatening situation.

"RUN. HIDE. FIGHT. Surviving an Active Shooter Event" is the title of the video.

KMOV reported St. Louis County Police told the news outlet that the agency was called every day "to make sure firings and layoffs don't turn violent."

A Patch check of the two most recent activity reports indicates the department made three responses for cases of that type since late July. None resulted in incident.

The video can be viewed with this article or found on the county police website at www.stlouisco.com/police. It's the video in the upper right hand corner called "Run. Hide. Fight." 

The professionally made video provides a chilling scenario that, sadly, some people have found themselves in the middle of recently. It explains what steps people can take to survive a potentially deadly situation. 

Watch the video and tell us what you think...Would you be able to act on your feet?
