If you encounter an active shooter or violent intruder quickly determine the most reasonable way to protect your own life. Assist injured persons if you can do this safely. Follow the A.L.I.C.E. program of response:
Be aware of your surroundings and unusual activity. Take note of emergency notifications (text messages, e-mails, announcements, etc.).

Silence sources of noise (cell phones, radios, televisions).
Do not respond to voice commands until you can be sure they are coming from a police officer. Do not open the door until you can be positive it is a police officer or a recognized campus official coming to help you.
Close and lock windows, lower blinds, remain out of sight, turn off lights.
Hide behind large items -- concrete walls, thick desks, filing cabinets, away from windows and doors -- that can stop bullets.
