GREENE COUNTY, Ind (WTHI) - Local schools, private businesses, and government buildings are being forced to rethink their own security on the heels of Monday’s deadly Navy Yard shooting in Washington, D.C.
"We're living in dangerous times, and we're living in times of extremism. Times that we've never seen before,” said Roger Axe, director of Greene County’s emergency management agency.
Axe is once again touting his own single-page survival pamphlet, authored just this year and has been vetted by the Greene County sheriff and the Indiana State Police, Axe said.
It’s also modeled after FEMA’s much lengthier, 21-page survival publication.
Axe’s message to, 'How to Respond When A Shooter Is Nearby', is as follows:
1. Get out!
3. Fight, though teenagers and adults only!
Axe said a proactive approach is the only way to go.
"The more knowledge that we have on dealing with the situation and the better prepared we are, the more we think about it -- the better we will react in a positive way that can save our life when the situation presents itself!"
