Not much info here, and they say think like a police officer RUN AWAY... How about pull your own leagel weapon and protect your self and others while the police are running away.

What to do if caught in a shooting? Very simple, shoot back. If every dirtbag criminal was met in this way there would be no more crime.

I seriously doubt employees are allowed to carry in the hospital. Most hospitals here in Anchorage have child care facilities in them and some type of social work going on so it would be illegal to carry concealed anyways.

Learn how to shoot and arm yourself... watch your 'background' ... don't want to be shooting at elementary schools such as in the Felber case... other than that Officer Parker is right.

I have watched numerous films with shooters. I think that I would crumple on the ground and become a rock. I do not recall shooters reshooting victims. To become a fake wounded seems more of a posibility than being a moving target. I can play dead a lot longer than I can hide.

Let us all pray to God that we never have to activate these plans.

I don't know about you but since living on the East Coast for quite a while, hitting the floor and not moving has been the safest means of survival that has stood the test of time; for me, anyway.

You will bleed to death waiting for help after you call 911. Their comes a time when you have to take care of your self. That's what a CCW is for.
