Planning and preparing for a mass shooter

Schools, malls, even churches, no place seems immune to shootings these days. But would you be ready to react if a gunman suddenly opened fire where you were? (WSYX/WTTE)

Schools, malls, even churches, no place seems immune to shootings these days. But would you be ready to react if a gunman suddenly opened fire where you were?

Security experts say it's something no one wants, but everyone should be prepared for.

"Freeze can be good initially until you assess what happens," said Al Cook, a retired sheriff's deputy who now trains police departments around the state.

It's what you do next that can spell the difference between life and death.

"Have a pre-plan in your mind," said Cook."Rehearse it. Do the what if's. Think it through. That's not paranoia.That's planning. That's preparedness."

Preparedness that one day might just save a life.
