This pass weekend I was able to do some training on house clearing A few things was discussed. Knowing your house, Cover and concealment, what to do with your loved ones and what they should do. Couple of different scenario’s discussed was you wake up to intruder in the home at night. You and your family come home to your house broken into.
KNOWING YOUR HOUSE
Remember its your house you have the advantage of knowing the lay out better then anybody else. By taking a hour in a house you should be able to map out a floor plan pretty well. You most likely have years to figure out your own house. Most people burglarizing your home doesn’t so that will give you a edge. You know where things are placed, you know what rooms your loved ones should be in to get to them fast.
COVER AND CONCEALMENT
A simple way to put this is cover is something that protects you and concealment is something that hides you. The things that possible can be used as cover possibly would be a refrigerator, washer, dryer, a solid dresser (im talking about a solid wood such as oak) and a gun safe. Concealment could be a interior wall, table, mattress, and couch. Point is try to learn what might stop a bullet and what won’t. Some things might stop a handgun round but not a rifle round. Remember thing’s that might be concealment empty such as your dresser or book case could turn into cover when packed with clothes or books. Here is a web site to learn more.

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR LOVED ONE’S
You should have a plan set in place if somebody breaks into your home while your in it. You should all practice that plan at least once a month. Plan for different things so each person knows what they have to do in different instances. If your cut off from the kids rooms. Your kids should know what to do where to hide or go to escape to another location. What you or your spouse should do.
