If you’re driving down I-65 in Mobile, you may see new billboards telling you to “Run, Hide or Fight.”

The Alabama Department of Homeland Security paid for the billboards to alert the public to a video detailing how to respond to an active shooter situation in a public setting or the work place.

They are being paid for with a $50,000 federal grant and will be in place until July.

The billboards direct people to a website where they can view a training video on how to deal with an active shooter event.

The website says those in an active shooter situation generally have three options:

  • Run: Can you safely escape?
  • Hide: Is there a good place to hide?
  • Fight: Will you take out the shooter?

View the video on the Alabama DHS website.
