Active Shooter – Active Threat

Call 911 immediately.

  • Take the necessary precautions and actions to protect your well-being.
  • DO NOT pull the fire alarm to alert others as this may put others in danger.
  • AVOID the threat by fleeing the area if safe to do so (RUN).

  • DEFEND yourself by fighting back as a last resort (FIGHT).
  • Remain in place until authorities advise it is safe.
