With so much violence in the news such as shootings, kidnappings, etc. I thought it might be appropriate to start a conversation on safety.
A female police officer suggested these some videos which I thought were extremely useful. And I did some research to find other information.
Parents, please watch them first before showing them to your children to be sure your child is ready.
This first one was created by cooperation through several police agencies in Santa Clara County, CA. It deals with surviving an active shooter situation in a school. I found it especially interesting how important it is to deal properly with the officers so you are not accidentally harmed by them.

Another one geared for businesses, click on the first video in the center of the screen:
And another briefer video from Oprah about how you should handle yourself when you are in individual danger.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
