Important Information to Remember:
What to do during an Active Shooter Incident:
- If you see or hear gunfire, call 9-1-1 immediately. Provide the dispatcher with all available information regarding the threat.
- Assess the situation. If it is safer to remain in the classroom/office, stay where you are and lock or barricade doors. Do not open doors unless instructed to do so by staff or authorized personnel. Emergency responders may enter the room using a master key or by providing official identification.
- The campus may be placed on a heightened security status. Remain quiet until more can be learned about the situation.
- Calmly and quietly review emergency evacuation procedures to prepare for possible evacuation. Remain in classroom/office unless notified by the appropriate authorities
