Active Shooter Awareness 

It’s important that the public be aware of the warning signs of a potential active shooter and what to do if a serious situation like this happens.

 

What to do if there is an Active Shooter
There have been several high profile "active shooter" incidents around the United States resulting in multiple casualties. It is important for people to be prepared in the event they find themselves in an "active shooter" situation.  

Please take a few minutes to view the video, Run, Hide, Fight.  Although the video does contain some violent scenes, it outlines very practical steps you can take in this situation.

 

The Department of Homeland Security also has a website (www.dhs.gov/activeshooter) that provides information and free courses, materials and workshops to help better prepare you to deal with an active shooter situation and to raise awareness of behaviors that may represent indicators and characteristics of active shooters.
