How to Respond to an Active Shooter Situation                                            

An active shooter is an individual engaged in randomly killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area, typically through the use of firearms.


  • Have an escape route and plan in mind
  • Leave your belongings behind
  • Keep your hands visible


  • 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
