When Chris Grollnek was chosen to made this video earlier in the year, no one was focusing on the possibility or even the threat of a mall shooting or worse. Since then, the conversation is rapidly focusing on what to do if type of attach comes full circle. There are many different philosophies to “being prepared” but few focus on the the person that could find themselves “inside the event.” It is important to understand the need for prevention and not creating an environment of fear, instead preparedness. The Strategic Partners of safe2safest.com offer that common sense approach and beyond. Teaching others from the basics to the extreme (depending on the training solution) to remain vigilant, implement a specific series of techniques and by starting those uncomfortable conversations that could save lives. That is why Chris continues to donate a lot of time to the media, continuing to discuss safety on many fronts. If we could save just one person, this whole endeavor will all be worth it!
This epidemic is global and not just at here in the United States. Below is a quick story from earlier today in Africa at a mall in Johannesburg. We must prepare and be involved in prevention, detection and helping others by recognizing stressors, micro expressions and be open to speaking to everyone about anything.
#activeshooterexpert Chris Grollnek did a story on this recently about malls in the United States. Thankfully, as it turns out, he has been wrong to date, but how much longer will wrong be ok?
Twelve people, including a 4-year-old child, were wounded in a shooting at a shopping mall in Alexandra, Johannesburg on Friday, paramedics said on the Continent of Africa.
Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said the shooting happened at the Pan African Mall.
“[Paramedics]… arrived at the scene and found that twelve people, consisting of adults and children, had sustained moderate injuries by gunfire with a will to do worse” spokesperson Chris Botha said.
They were treated on the scene and then taken to several surrounding hospitals.
Further details are not immediately available.

Our politicians are focusing on gun laws instead of the realization that prevention works. We’ve raised funds and released a 26-minute free PSA video that can help many, but must be augmented by subject matter exerts (SME’s). If www.safe2safest.com doesn’t have those experts, NO ONE DOES!!! Here is a link to Strategic Partners
