ACTIVE SHOOTER

An Active Shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area; in most cases, active shooters use firearms(s) and there is no
pattern or method to their selection of victims. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly.

 

What to do

  • Be aware of your environment and any possible dangers
  • Getting away from the shooter or shooters is the top priority
  • If you are safe and in the building, stay there and secure the door
  • Find a place to hide where the active shooter is less likely to find you.
  • Don’t hide in groups. Spread out along walls or hide separately to make it more difficult for the shooter.
  • Silence your cell phone
  • Turn off any source of noise
  • Remain calm and quiet

After

  • Follow law enforcement instructions and evacuate in the direction they come from unless otherwise instructed
  • Take care of yourself first, and then you may be able to help the wounded before first responders arrive
  • Do not go out into the public streets
  • Make yourself aware of your surroundings. Be aware of the conduct of people near to you. If they are acting suspicious, alert the local authorities
  • Make contact with your family and friends
  • Don't panic
  • Listen to the radio or television for news and instructions
  • Stay away from large gatherings
