Active Shooter Protocol

Active Shooter Protocol

Secure your immediate area:

  • Lock and/or barricade doors with any available object(s) (chairs, tables, desks, etc) 
  • Turn off lights 
  • Close blinds 
  • Block windows 
  • Turn off computer monitors 
  • Keep occupants calm, quiet, and out of sight by laying low to the ground 
  • Keep yourself out of sight and take adequate cover/protection (i.e. concrete walls, desks, chairs, tables, filing cabinets, etc.).  Such cover may protect you from injury
  • Silence cell phones 
  • Place signs in exterior windows to identify the location of injured persons

Contacting Authorities: 

  • Dial 911 or 9-9-1-1 from any campus telephone. Be aware that the 911 system will likely be overwhelmed.
  • Program the Campus Security emergency line into cell phone for emergency use. Extension 4444 or 366.4444 (emergency line)

What to Report: 

  • Your specific location- building name and office/room number 
  • Number of people at your specific location 
  • Injuries- number injured, types of injuries 
  • Assailant(s)- location, number of suspects, race/gender, clothing description, physical features, type of weapon(s) (long gun or hand gun), backpack, shooter’s identity if known, separate explosions from gunfire, etc

Un-Securing an area: 

  • Responding special forces will assist in un-securing and rescuing victims who are locked down; Consider risks before un-securing rooms 
  • Remember, the shooter will not stop until he/she is engaged by an outside force 
  • Attempts to rescue people should only be attempted if it can be accomplished without further endangering the persons inside a secured area. 
  • Consider the safety of masses –vs- the safety of a few 
  • If doubt exists for the safety of the individuals inside the room, the area should remain secured

Security Response: 

  • If possible, limit suspect(s) movement(s) by securing all unaffected buildings; evacuate victims to safety; provide master keys and logistical support to responding special forces and emergency medical services 
  • Facilitate basic first aid or triage injured victims if possible 
  • Assist law enforcement authorities with investigation
