Active Shooter: Run-Hide-Fight: What to Do

What the video says to do

Run – When an active shooter is in your vicinity:

  • Attempt to evacuate, if there is an escape path
  • Evacuate whether others agree to or not
  • Leave your belongings behind
  • Help others escape if possible
  • Prevent others from entering the area
  • Call 9-1-1 when you are safe

Hide – If evacuation is not possible, find a place to hide:

  • Lock and/or blockade the door
  • Silence your cell phone
  • Hide behind large objects
  • Remain very quiet

Fight – As a last resort, and only if your life is in danger:

  • Attempt to incapacitate the shooter
  • Act with physical aggression
  • Improvise weapons
  • Commit to your actions
