Lockdown Procedures


Threatening individual who is on campus (and/or in a University building) that has threatened or has actually caused an act of violence on campus against a member(s) of the University community.  This includes individuals who committed an act of violence off-campus and who may now be on campus or may be headed towards the campuses (and/or clinics operated by the University).  If notified of a Hostile Intruder in your area take the following protective measures.

 

"Figure Out" The situation, what is going on?


"Get Out" If you determine that you can get out to a safer area.  Leave your belongings behind.  The best way to survive an active shooter situation is, not be where the shooter is and not go where he/she can see you.


"Hide Out" If you cannot get out, then you must find a place to hide out.


"Keep Out" Hide in a room that can be locked with objects to hide behind.  Block the door with heavy furniture.


"Spread Out" DO NOT huddle together.  Quietly talk about what to do if the shooter enters.  Remain Calm.


"Take Out" If you determine there is not other option than to take out the shooter, then be prepared to do whatever is necessary to neutralize that threat.
