    Laughing and calling someone names is not an appropriate response when people get hostile. This kind of response can escalate the situation further and provoke the person even more. It is important to remain calm and not engage in any behavior that could worsen the hostility. Instead, it is advisable to focus on personal safety by memorizing identifying details about the hostile person and, if necessary, calling 911 when it is safe to do so.

    A. Help others escape
    C. Prevent others from entering the area
    D. Call 911 when you are safe
    Explanation
    In a situation where evacuation is possible, it is important to prioritize the safety of others. Helping others escape ensures that everyone has a chance to get to safety. Preventing others from entering the area is crucial to avoid putting more people in danger. Calling 911 when you are safe allows emergency services to be aware of the situation and provide assistance if needed. Grabbing personal belongings is not mentioned as a necessary action in this scenario, as it may delay the evacuation process and put lives at risk.

    The first officers to arrive on the scene will not stop to help evacuate or help injured persons.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the first officers to arrive on the scene will prioritize other tasks over helping evacuate or assisting injured individuals. This may be because their primary responsibility is to assess the situation, secure the area, and gather information. They may also need to coordinate with other emergency responders and provide critical support, such as directing traffic or establishing a command center. While their assistance may eventually be provided, their initial focus is on managing the immediate crisis and ensuring public safety.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Lock/Barricade Doors
    B. Silence your phone
    C. Hide behind large objects
    D. Remain calm and quiet
    Explanation
    Locking or barricading doors can help prevent an intruder from entering the room and provide a sense of security. Silencing the phone is important to avoid making any noise that could alert the intruder to your presence. Hiding behind large objects can provide cover and make it harder for the intruder to locate you. Remaining calm and quiet is crucial to avoid drawing attention to yourself and to maintain a clear mind for making any necessary decisions.

    The word "last" in this context suggests that the resort mentioned is the final or ultimate resort in a series or sequence. In the given sentence, it implies that when faced with a shooter, the resort should be the last option or the final course of action. This means that all other possible measures or alternatives should be exhausted before resorting to fighting in order to neutralize or disable the shooter.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Active shooter incidents are often characterized by their unpredictability and lack of a discernible pattern. This means that the shooter may target victims randomly, without any specific method or selection process. The situation can escalate rapidly, making it difficult to anticipate or prevent such events. Therefore, the statement that there is no pattern or method to the selection of victims and that the event is unpredictable and can evolve quickly is true.
