The Mall of America security team will be doing monthly lockdown drills to ensure they are ready if and when trouble strikes. They had their first drill earlier this week, shortly after the mall opened.
This exercise and approach to preparedness is one that I’m hoping other shopping mall managers across the country will take notice of and consider adopting.
Last month you might recall, Spike TV’s Surviving Disaster, featured an episode on how to survive and escape an active shooting by a group of terrorists in a shopping mall. You can see that video here.
