Safety Tips to Students Given Out by Campus Security

RUN, HIDE, FIGHT – In the event of an active shooter

  • When an active shooter is in your vicinity:
  • Have an escape route and plan in mind.
  • Leave your belongings behind.
  • Hide in an area out of the shooter’s view.
  • Block entry to your hiding place and lock the doors.
  • Silence your cell phone.
  • As a last resort and only when your life is in imminent danger:
  • Attempt to incapacitate the shooter.
  • Act with physical aggression and throw items at the active shooter.

FIRE SAFETY – In Case of Fire

  • Learn the location of emergency exits.
  • Exit by the nearest stairway. Do NOT use elevators.
  • Smoke is toxic. If the only way out is through smoke, stay low, below the smoke.
  • If trapped, call 911 and tell them where you are. Seal doors with rags or clothing and try to signal from a window.
