Quote:
Code White
You are secure. Awareness is switched off. You are unaware of your environment, its inhabitants, and their rituals of attack. All attackers look for victims in this state.
Code Yellow
You are cautious. Awareness is switched on. State of threat awareness and relaxed alertness. You have a 360-degree peripheral awareness of such environmental danger spots as secluded doorways, entries, and alleys, as well as such psychological triggers as adrenal dump and attacker ruses. Be aware of people, vehicles, behind large objects, dark areas, etc.
Code Orange
You are in danger. State of threat evaluation. Specific alert. A possible target has been identified. A particular situation that has drawn your attention and could present a major problem. Someone may be giving oral indicators such as direct threats or using suspicious language. Focus on the potential attacker. Check to see if there is an avenue of escape, potential weapons available, and if others around you are friend or foe. Decision is made to take action.
Code Red
You are in conflict. State of threat avoidance. Fight or flight. Flee, defend, or attack. You have evaluated the situation, and if there is a threat, you prepare to fight or run. Never stand or fight if there is a possibility of fleeing. Carry out decision to act made in Code Orange. If use of physical self-defense techniques is necessary, use the level of force appropriate to the threat. E.g., don't treat someone who pushes you because he is rude like someone who is trying to stab you with a knife.

The color code is best learned, lived and then forgotten. At least until you need to pass it on.

An alternative to this code...and probably an easier one to burn to memory and practice...is ...

_I.P.D.E._ easy to pronounce and recite, even if mentally during the day in your activities.

It stands for:

I.= identify_ P.= predict_ D.= decide_ E.-execute
