Run, Hide, Fight

To enhance preparedness in the event of an active shooter, the US Department of Homeland Security advises remembering the phrase: “Run, Hide, Fight.”

1) RUN if there is an escape path, keep your hands visible, and call 911 when you are able.

2) HIDE in an area out of the shooter’s view, lock or barricade the entrance, silence your cell phone.

3) As a LAST resort, FIGHT to attempt to incapacitate the shooter.
