There is no reason for fear.
Survival is the key word to remember.
Knowledge is a part of the struggle for survival; the rest must come from you. It depends on you whether you will end up in a passive acceptance or stand up and shout: "I won’t be a victim! I'll survive." The choice is yours. Therefore – cover windows, barricade doors, store supplies of water and food, radio, flashlight, tool kit, first aid kit, clothing, bedding, maps, important personal documents, cash, and other supplies that you may need the first few days until you find a shelter. After you have made your emergency kit, organize in groups and make a plan in case of attack. Identify the possible risks in your area. Make a list of local contacts like the police, fire department and local emergency response team. Carefully plan your escape route. Plan where to go and move in several directions. That way you're always in advantage, and in this case – they have no chance!
