If an armed intruder alert has been issued, use the following steps to protect yourself:
Get Out – leave your belongings behind, have an escape route and plan in mind, and keep your hands visible to law enforcement.
Hide Out – hide out of sight from the assailant and block entry and sight into your hiding place.
Take Out – As a last resort, attempt to incapacitate the assailant by acting with physical aggression or throwing items.
Call 911 only when it is safe for you to do so.
Follow the instructions of law enforcement officers when leaving the area. Keep your hands visible and remain calm.
Aid the wounded only if it is safe for you to do so and you are able to help.
Understand that affected areas may be a crime scene and access to retrieve personal belongings or to resume normal operations may be severely limited.
