Jon's post was in reaction to the San Bernardino terrorist attack and probably the Paris attacks. Very sad on all accounts. But, the post passed on the Department of Homeland Security's Guide on How to Respond to an Active Shooter. Really? Has this truly become necessary? Unfortunately yes!
Now I do not subscribe to Ben Carson's suggestion that people should collectively charge shooters - although we may want to and while some people have the courage to do so, it seems quite unrealistic when automatic weapons are discharging rounds at lighting speed. But having a plan at a school, place of business or place of employment is a good idea.
So perhaps the Department of Homeland Security's Guide may save a few lives. Give it a read and pass along to your friends and franchise family.
Hopefully, we will not see an incident in any of our franchise businesses but it is possible, unfortunately. Be smart and be prepared!
