Understanding Potential Campus Emergencies and Hazards

It's a good safety practice to understand, prepare for and respond to potential emergencies and hazards that can occur on campus.

An active shooter or harmer incident involves one or more person seeking to harm others in a public place, whether with a gun, knife, bomb, vehicle or other means. These situations can be unpredictable and evolve quickly. Before an emergency like this happens, it's a good idea to be aware of your surroundings, including noting all exits to any buildings you enter. 

To report an active or suspected active harmer situation, call or text 911.
