Anyone still listening?

Hello? Anyone out there still? With everything going on out there in the world it sure seems like Don’t Get Bit should be running again. If ever this was needed, now would be the time. Who’s down?

Run! Hide! Fight! Homeland Security Workplace Shooting Safety Video

An over-the-top instructional video has been released from a Homeland Security department on what to do if you are caught up in a mass shooting or the begining of the Zombie Apocalypse.

The six-minute tape, complete with pulsating soundtrack and blood spatter, advises that the best way to survive is follow three steps – run, hide or as a last resort, fight. Which is what we always promote here at DGB. Anyone who wades into a horde of zombies is going to be a zombie. So running and hiding doesn’t make you a coward.

The clip was produced by the Houston Police Department in Alabama and published on November 5 by the state’s Homeland Security department. It depicts the nightmare which unfolds as a sole gunman stalks employees in an office building.

Contributions may also be sent to someone’s local Red Cross chapter or to the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, DC 20013.

PLEASE GIVE BLOOD… The storm has already caused the cancellation of Red Cross blood drives in the region, and more cancellations are expected. This has resulted in the loss of several hundred units of blood and platelets so far. The Red Cross has shipped blood products to hospitals in the affected area in advance of the storm as patients will still need blood and platelets despite the weather. If anyone is eligible, especially in places not affected by the storm, they are asked to please schedule a blood donation now.

To schedule a blood donation or get more information about giving blood, people can visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). To give blood, someone must be at least 17 years of age, meet weight and height requirements and be in general good health.

Donors should bring their Red Cross blood donor card or other form of positive ID with them. Some states allow 16-year-olds to give with parental consent.

Freaking Amateur: Woman Killed When Her Husband Accidentally Shoots Cannon Into Their Home

A woman was killed early Tuesday when her husband, who had allegedly been drinking, accidentally shot a homemade cannon into the couple’s home.

Homicide detectives with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department are investigating the 33-year-old woman’s death, which took place in the 25000 block of Potrero Valley Road. Authorities say she was found dead at 12:15 a.m. after a cannonball fired by her husband and another man slammed into a residence at the Twin Lakes Resort mobile home park.

It appears the accident happened while the two men were tinkering with the cannon. Officials say the area, which is near the Mexican border, is known for unusual activity. A Cal Fire dispatcher told San Diego’s CBS8 that one of the two men was transported to a local hospital with injuries he sustained during the blast.
