ACTIVE SHOOTER RESPONSE WAYS TO STAY SAFE


What comes to your mind when you hear Active Shooter? An active shooter is an individual engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area. In most cases, active shooters use firearms and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. We rarely give any thought at work on a normal day to such a scenario. Situations of an active shooter are unpredictable and usually do not allow a time for warning. You can make an impact and possibly save lives by talking about and training your coworkers or loved ones as to what they should do if this scenario takes place. If the shooter is inside your building: 1. Try to safely escape out of the nearest exit or window and leave all personal belongings and wounded personnel. 2. As you exit the building, keep your hands above your head, avoiding any sudden movements that may cause a police officer to mistake your actions for a threat. Listen for instructions from the police. Remain calm at all times. If there is no officer present, call the police at 911, and inform the dispatcher of the situation. 3. If you are unable to escape the building, get out of open areas like hallways and lobbies. Go into an office or room and lock or barricade the door. Lie down on the floor or under a desk and remain silent. Do not move. Wait for the police to find you.

As you have seen throughout the media, the workplace, public buildings, and schools are not immune to Active Shooters. It is imperative that people know how to respond during a violent act such as this. Here are some If the shooter enters your office or classroom: things you should do: 1.

Counseling Services
We all experience ups and downs in life. At some point just about everyone needs help coping with stress caused by life's many challenges. Stress can be caused by such things as family hardships, marital conflicts, parent/child issues, money concerns, frequent moves, health issues, losses, and other difficulties. We may first try to discuss problems with family, friends, or coworkers, but often this just isn't enough. Sometimes it helps to talk to an experienced counselor. The FFSC offers counseling by professional, licensed clinicians. Clinical counseling services are free of charge to active duty personnel, activated reservists, retirees, and family members. If you would like to schedule an appointment or get additional information about counseling services, contact one of our licensed clinicians at 504-678-7569.

WHATS A SNO-BALL?
Though children and adults alike have been enjoying treats made with chipped ice since at least the Roman Empire era, the modern shaved ice treat, usually known as a snow cone, came into popularity in the late eighteen hundreds when someone came up with the idea of a wooden hand ice shaver. Vendors quickly began selling their flavored-syrup-drenched summer treats on street corners in cities across the country. But the sno-ball, without the w, is uniquely New Orleans. In 1934, during the Great Depression, a machinist named Ernest Hanson invented and patented the motorized ice shaver which produced the required ice far more quickly and with a more consistent texture. The rest is New Orleans history. Corner ice shaver vendors citywide welcomed the high volume snow production immediately and you might say the new ice treats popularity in this hot and humid city just snowballed. Hanson and his wife Mary made and sold their popular sno-balls using that same 1934 ice shaving machine for over seventy years. Look around this summer: if you see a line of people, young and old, winding down the sidewalk and around the corner in the summer heat in front of a small, brightly colored building with a large window, you can bet whats being handed through that window are New Orleans sno-balls in flavors like King Cake that you wont find anywhere else.

All workshops and classes are held at the Naval Air Station, Joint Reserve Base, Fleet & Family Support Center (FFSC), Bldg. 555 unless otherwise noted.
