Active Shooter


  • Getting away from the shooter or shooters is the top priority.
  • Leave you things behind and run away.
  • If safe to do so, warn others nearby.
  • Call 911 when you are safe.


  • If you can’t get away safely, find a place to hide.
  • Stay quiet and get out of shooters view.
  • Lock and block doors, close blinds, and turn off the lights.
  • Hide separately- not in groups.
  • Try to communicate with police silently, do not be loud.
  • Stay in place until law enforcement gives you all clear.


  • Defend yourself.
  • Commit to your actions and act aggressively to stop the shooter.
  • Ambush the shooter with makeshift weapons such as scissors, books, fire extinguishers, or chairs.
