  • Create barriers to prevent or slow down a threat from getting to you.
  • Turn the lights off.
  • Remain out of sight and quiet by hiding behind large objects and silence your phone.

DEFEND

Because you have the right to protect yourself
  • Be aggressive and committed to your actions.
  • Do not fight fairly. THIS IS ABOUT SURVIVAL.
