On the night of October 1, 2017, Stephen Paddock smashed the windows out of his thirty-second-floor suite of the Mandalay Bay hotel and opened fire on a large crowd of concertgoers who were attending a country music festival on the Las Vegas strip. Fifty-eight people were killed, and over 450 were wounded in the deadliest mass shooting in United States History. This incident, and so many others like it, demonstrates the significance of having a plan to keep yourself safe in any environment and any situation.
