Be Aware of Your Surroundings

As was demonstrated yesterday in Turkey, and a couple of months ago in Brussels.....the unsecured areas of an airport (actually any mass transit station) are now a problem. Hundreds of people milling about in an open area, carrying luggage (that could contain anything), with their faces glued to their phones.

LOOK UP PEOPLE! Pay attention to your surroundings. Know where the exits are. If possible be armed, and if armed, be prepared TO STOP AN ATTACK!

  1. Unfortunately, in the case of the Turkish airport bombing, I'm not sure if looking up from your cell phone, Situational Awareness and/or being armed would have helped. People coming and going, busy-busy, would you know what to look for in a mass of faces to ID a potential bomber?
    The best thing to do here would be to NOT put yourself in a mass of people. Stay as far away as possible from airports and malls. Even WalMart on a Saturday night (shudder).

    Now in the case of the Orlando shooting, Situational Awareness, knowing where the exits are, and being armed, that would have helped a lot.
