The Las Vegas shooting on October 1, 2017, was a devastating reminder that being prepared for unexpected danger is crucial -- especially when you're at a live event with thousands of people.
That's one of the many reasons why we invited former CIA agent Jason Hanson back to the studio, so he could share his best tips for staying safe at a concert -- or any other big, live event you may attend.
First and most importantly, Jason says, “Always identify two exits as soon as you get in. One exit may be blocked by a fire, or maybe a bad guy’s coming through there. So go to the alternate exit.” So always be sure to note those exit signs!
Jason’s other tip? “Don't stand smack dab in the middle at an event. If something happens, it’s going to take you a long time to get to safety,” he explains. “If you're on the perimeter, you’ll get out that exit and you’ll be much safer.”
