JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

What would you do if you found yourself in an active shooter event?

The Department of Homeland Security says your survival may depend on whether or not you have a plan.

There are three things to remember -- run, hide or fight.

If you can escape, leave your belongings behind. Help people if you can, but run away.

If you have nowhere to run, find a place to hide.

And as a last resort, fight. Act with aggression, improvise weapons and try to disarm the shooter, the Department of Homeland Security advises.
