Handling an Active Shooter Situation

There are three basic options: RUN, HIDE, or FIGHT. Quickly determine the most reasonable way to protect your own life.

  • RUN - Evacuate: If an escape route is accessible, attempt to evacuate the premises.
  • HIDE - If evacuation is not possible, find a place to hide where an active shooter is less likely to find you.
  • FIGHT - Take action against the active shooter

Faculty and staff must be cognizant that students or visitors are likely to follow their lead in an active shooter event.
