Active/Suspected Active Shooter(s) on Campus

In an active shooter situation, you should quickly determine the most reasonable way to protect your own life.
You should:

  1. Evacuate—If there is an accessible escape path, attempt to evacuate the premises.
  2. Hide out—If evacuation is not possible, find a place to hide where the active shooter is less likely to find you.
  3. Take action—As a last resort, and only when your life is in imminent danger, attempt to disrupt and/or incapacitate the active shooter.
  4. Call 911
  5. Call LVC public safety at ext. 6111
*Actions 1–3 are from FEMA recommendations made in their online training session for an active shooter scenario.
