1. May I suggest a few items for inclusion? 1. Range card your property during the day and check the shapes and dark spots at night so you know there is a bush at 4 O’clock at 50 yards and that big scary thng at 6 O’clock is the shed and not a vehicle sneaking up on you.
    2.primary, secondary and supplemental positions- are you fighting from the yard back to the house or staying in the house. 3. If in a group- assign fields of fire, use aiming stakes and check your comms with others. If alone with your family, where can you channel the attackers into a choke point to produce the most damage from your fire- Hallway, staircase, etc?
    4. Do you have an escape route for your family or if a group, who knows the route out with the kids?
    5. Latly for this exercise in brevity, light , fire and noise discipline. If they can see you, smell you or hear you – then you are now on their radar and they are a threat you will have to deal with.

  2. Some food for thought on a here and now scenario- how does a paraplegic (no leg use) individual escape from a burning building? Say the Ground Floor or Basement in a residential setting. The normal escape routes are burning away full bore, the only escapes are windows that will have to be smashed out.

    The goal is to get out alive, unassisted by a care giver, AND without landing on shards of the glass that was just knocked out.

    This is a real time issue that will worsen as more troops return home with various extremity amputations and/or inability to use their legs.
