Active Shooter

  1. If you can, take off (evacuate). Leave belongings behind. Keep your hands visible. Please do not drive away as to prevent blocking emergency responders from accessing the campus.
  2. If unable to evacuate, take cover. Hide out in an area away from the active shooter’s view. Lock doors. Block entry to the hiding place.
  3. As a last resort, and only if your life is in danger, take action. Attempt to incapacitate the active shooter. Act with physical aggression and throw items at the shooter.
