Run

  1. Try to exit as quickly and safely as possible.
  2. Try to encourage others you may encounter along the way to leave, but don’t let them slow you down to much if they don’t cooperate.
  3. As soon as it is safe to do so, call 911.
  4. Prevent others from entering the building.

Hide

  1. Lock doors and barricade if possible.
  2. Silence phones.
  3. Turn off lights.
  4. Do not hide right behind the barricaded door. Seek cover away from the door.

  1. Only fight as a last resort.
  2. Use anything you can to arm yourself. For example: fire extinguisher, scissors, etc.
  3. Try to surprise the shooter to gain upper hand.
