Active Shooter, Imminent Threat of Deadly Violence on Campus

Run, Hide, Fight

Run-Leave the building/campus if possible. Remove yourself form the threat. Even by unconventional means e.g. window.

Hide- Hide behind locked doors, under furniture, away from windows, close blinds and cut off lights to the room, as well as cell phone ringers. Call 911 or 3000 from a campus phone if you are unable to speak, leave the line open.

Fight- Prepare to defend yourself – “Do what you have to do”

Fire Alarm Evacuations

•       A fire alarm notification appliance is an active fire protection component of a fire alarm system. A notification appliance may use audible, visible, or other stimuli to alert the occupants of a fire or other emergency condition requiring action.

•       Be aware of the marked exits for quicker response.

•       NEVER ignore the alarm, assume the alarm is false, or assume it is only a fire alarm test. 

•       Once outside the building, move away from the building. Meeting point for the campus will be the marked parking lots that sit directly across from buildings # 1 and # 2.

•       Once outside, never re-enter the building until you are told to do so by the fire department or law enforcement.

Severe Weather Plan & Shelter in Place

•       Secure sensitive areas-labs kitchens, cash registers

•       Go to the lowest possible level (ground floor or lower)

•       Seek interior hallways, rooms, offices away from glass.

•       Take cellphones and valuables with you.

•       Assist the disabled

•       Avoid rooms with larger roof span such as gyms, cafeterias, and auditoriums.

•       Wait for “all clear” from Police.
