Run, Hide, Don't Freeze!: Teach Your Children What To Do When Faced With Danger (Paperback)
"As a father of two school age boys, I understand the fears every parent can face. Although highly unlikely, we have to understand and recognize that the threat of an active shooter can exist in our world. We all hope we will never need this information in the same way that we hope we will never need to follow the instructions given to us by a Flight Attendant at the beginning of a commercial flight. The intent of this book is to give you and your child the information and tools that may help you in the unlikely event of an active shooter/intruder situation that isn't happening in an education environment. Most drills for this age are adult lead emergency drills, however, what if the adult is not available or does not know how to react? The tools taught will apply to multiple environments including social settings, open public areas, while shopping, or even at the cinema. Reading this book with your child will open the door to productive discussions in a safe environment.
To create this book, I lean on my experiences being Ex British Forces, Ex British Police Service and currently being a Security Advisor and Certified Protection Professional, but most of all, being a Dad. This book takes best practices around the principles of Run, Hide, Fight, which are the 3 levels of response that people can progressively use to minimize their exposure to harm and prepares yours and your child's mindset around planning to succeed."
