Post Situation: Now What? Copy

Now that the threat has either stopped or is under control you will need to reassess and act accordingly.

  • Scan the area for possible exits or more threats
  • If no threat exists move to safety immediately while creating distance
  • Assess yourself physically for injury or wounds •Seek medical or police help if needed
  • Write down the events as you remember them and then recheck them the following day, Your brain will process this situation & you will be able to fill in any gaps that were missed from the initial incident
  • If the threat is still active you will need to act accordingly and then re-apply the steps above once you are safe

Your reassessment will let you mentally prep for more physical interaction if needed, the ability to now create space (distance) safely, and/or get help so you can be safe.
