- When you hear shooting, you have few seconds to estimate the situation and run to the exits. You should be aware of all the ways out – emergency exits, fire escape, windows.
- Do not hesitate to jump through the window at the second floor; your number one mission is to run away.
- Run fast and straight to the exit, bring people with you if you can.
