FBI Active Shooter Safety Training Videos

The recent attack at a synagogue in Texas underscores the enduring nature of violent threats posed to Jewish communities from terrorists and perpetrators of hate crimes. We are asking you to help us raise awareness of potential threats to religiously affiliated facilities and groups regardless of type, sect, or denomination. 

The FBI has released videos demonstrating the three tactics you can use to keep yourself and others safe during an active shooter attack: run, hide, and fight. We encourage you to use these films in your work within the community, but please note some of the content is disturbing and therefore should not be screened for young audiences. A short description of each film with links:  

Run. Hide. Fight.  
In this FBI training video, customers at a bar are caught in an active shooter event. By employing the run, hide, and fight tactics, as well as knowing the basics of rendering first aid to others, they are prepared, empowered, and able to survive the attack.  https://www.fbi.gov/video-repository/run-hide-fight-092120.mp4/view

Prepare to Survive  
This FBI training video describes how to employ the run, hide, and fight tactics to survive an active shooter incident. Although set in a house of worship, these principles can be applied anywhere.

If you have any questions about these videos or the expertise and specialized training offered by our FBI Field Office, please don’t hesitate to ask. Additional information is also available at FBI.gov/survive

The FBI is committed to working with its partners to protect schools, workplaces, houses of worship, transportation centers, other public gathering sites, and all communities. We appreciate all you do to share vital messages.
