Communication

While you may be alone when a deadly attack occurs, attacks can easily happen when you’re with other people, such as with your family.

In these situations, you need to be able to communicate instructions so that everyone comes out safe. Communication in a stressful situation can be difficult if you haven’t practiced. The next time at the range, try yelling instructions while on the firing line. Your groups just might change, meaning that you need more practice shouting and shooting.

Also, work out some instruction for family members before you possibly end up in a life and death situation. If everyone knows what you do, you increase teamwork and your likelihood of surviving the encounter. This is especially crucial if more than one family member goes armed. Every family member should know beforehand what his or her job is in a situation, even if it is just run and hide.
