The Department of Homeland Security’s Run, Hide, Fight methodology for active shooter response is considered a national best practice. But one veteran law enforcement expert and a certified active shooter response trainer warns that many schools and businesses around the country may not be teaching the fundamentals of run, hide, fight correctly. And that may be putting students and employees across the nation at greater risk.
