Colonel Cooper’s color code isn’t just use­ful for pre­par­ing for a self-de­fense sce­nario; it can be used for any sit­u­a­tion in which you might need to take de­ci­sive ac­tion. For ex­am­ple, dur­ing a nat­u­ral disas­ter such as a tor­nado or an earth­quake, you should be in Con­di­tion Yel­low if a tor­nado alert has been sounded or if you feel the ini­tial tremors.

If you see that either one is hap­pen­ing near you, you should im­me­di­ately move into Con­di­tion Or­ange and think about what you need to do in your cur­rent sit­u­a­tion and the steps you would take if you have to go to Con­di­tion Red. If the tor­nado moves to­ward you or your of­fice build­ing starts to shake, your trig­ger con­di­tions have been tripped; you are now in Con­di­tion Red. You need to move to the storm shelter to get away from the tor­nado or look for a door­way to shelter un­der if you don’t have time to get out of the build­ing dur­ing an earth­quake.
