In the event of an active shooter incident, here is some advice.
The tragedies at Virginia Tech and DeKalb have caused campuses across the country to reassess their level of preparedness. Our police department has for many years conducted training for our officers on responding to an active shooting incident.
We continue extensive on-going training for a response to these types of incidents. The awareness and preparedness of members of our community is equally important. We present this information for your use and distribution.
If you witness any armed individual on campus at any time, call 911. In the event of an active shooter incident, please consider taking the following actions:
Remember: The first responders on the scene are not there to tend to the injured. They are well trained, and are there to eliminate the threat and stop the shooter.
Be careful not to make any changes to the scene of the incident since law enforcement authorities will investigate the area later.
