The Boston Marathon; Sandy Hook Elementary School; the Aurora, Colorado movie theater; Columbine High School--sadly, most Americans are very familiar with these names and the tragic events that took place at each event or location. Mass shootings, home invasions, and other attacks on the general public are no longer the rare exception they were decades ago. No one wants to feel like a potential victim in their own neighborhood, but what can the average person do to stay safe?

The authors of Staying Alive: How to Act Fast and Survive Deadly Encounters give us the answer to that question. Inside, they take the successful strategies that have been used to avert planned school shootings, bombings, and other deadly events and demonstrate how those techniques can be utilized by the average person. The powerful and potentially life-saving information in this book includes:

An honest look at the myths and truths surrounding mass casualty events Proven strategies for surviving violent incidents in malls, movie theaters, places of worship, and at home Safety concepts that can be applied to fires, medical emergencies, tornadoes, car accidents, and other hazards

With an in-depth look at mass casualty attacks across the centuries--including the earliest recorded incident in 1764 in Western Pennsylvania, a vivid review of case studies to help readers fine tune how they prepare for life and death situations, techniques for improving crisis response, and much more, Staying Alive offers everything the average person needs to know in order respond to, and recover from, a crisis. An ideal reference for school teachers, parents, security personnel, and all others responsible for the care and safety of others.
