In the wake of the mass shooting in San Bernardino, police agencies are offering some tips that may save your life if you ever encounter an active shooter.

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office posted a six-minute video titled "Run, Hide, Fight" that was created by the Houston Mayor's Office of Public Safety and Homeland Security.

The video depicts recreated images of an active shooter in a busy work place.


Agencies hope the video will answers questions as to what a person can do if they face a similar ordeal.

MCSO said the "tips seem very basic, but in a highly stressful situation, the less you have to focus on, the better.”
