In Case of an Active Shooter

In general, how you respond to an active shooter will be dictated by the specific circumstances of the situation/or encounter. If you find yourself involved in an active shooter situation, try to remain calm and call 911 as soon as possible. (If possible UTTC Security 701-221-1700)

If an active shooter is outside your building or inside the building you are in, you should:

· Try to remain calm.

· Try to warn other faculty, staff, students and visitors to take immediate shelter.

· Proceed to a room that can be locked or barricaded.

· Lock and barricade doors or windows.

· Silence cell phones. Turn off radios or other devices that emit sound.

· Turn off lights. Close blinds.

· Keep yourself out of sight. Stay away from windows and take adequate cover/protection.

· When taking cover/protection consider concrete walls, thick desks, filing cabinets, etc.

· Wait patiently until a uniformed police officer/Sheriff’s Deputy, or a UTTC Campus Official known to you, provides an “all clear”.

· Unfamiliar voices may be an active shooter trying to lure you from safety; do not respond to voice commands until you can verify with certainty that they are being issued by a police officer/deputy or UTTC Campus official.

If an active shooter enters your office or classroom, you should:

· Try to remain calm.

· Try not to do anything that will provoke the active shooter.

· If there is no possibility of escape or hiding, only as a last resort when it is imminent that your life is in danger should you make a personal choice to attempt to negotiate with or overpower the         assailant(s).

· Call 911

· If the active shooter(s) leaves the area, barricade the room or proceed to a safer location.

If you are in an outside area and encounter an active shooter, you should:

· Try to remain calm.

· Move away from the active shooter or the sounds of gunshot(s) and/or explosion(s).

· Look for appropriate locations for cover/protection (example: brick walls, retaining walls, large trees, parked vehicles).

· Try to warn other faculty, staff, students and visitors to take immediate shelter.

· Call 911

What to expect from responding police officers/Sheriff’s Deputies

· The objectives of responding police officers/Sheriff’s Deputies are:

· Immediately engage or contain the active shooter(s) in order to stop life threatening behavior.

· Identify threats such as improvised explosives devices.

· Identify victims to facilitate medical care, interviews and counseling.

· Investigation.

Tornado/Severe Summer Weather

· Stay calm and remain inside.

· Seek shelter immediately in the lower level or an interior room of the building you are in.

  • Basements
