In the event of an active shooter emergency while in a classroom or other University building, you are encouraged to take the actions listed below:
- RUN: When an active shooter is in your vicinity, if there is an escape path, and it's safe to do so, attempt to evacuate.
- HIDE: If evacuation isn't possible, find a place to hide.
- FIGHT: As a last resort, and only if your life is in danger, attempt to incapacitate the shooter.
When law enforcement arrives, remain calm and follow instructions, always keep your hands visible, avoid pointing or yelling, and know that help for the injured is on the way. When informed to evacuate by emergency personnel, leave all personal effects behind, unless instructed otherwise by emergency personnel. Upon exiting the classroom space, promptly proceed to the location designated by or led to by emergency personnel. Don't re-enter classroom space until directed or given an all-clear by emergency personnel.
It's strongly recommended that all students take the time to watch this six-minute video supplied by the FBI titled "Run, Hide, Fight" at ActiveShooterPrep.
