Hostile Intruder

If a hostile intruder is seen inside a building, dial 911 report what is happening.

  • DO NOT pull a fire alarm! This could cause innocent persons to be put in harm's way.
  • Only you can tell if it is safe to run from the building.
  • If in doubt, do not run. Seek shelter where you are.
  • Lock the doors to the room you are in. Turn off the lights.
  • Stay out of sight of windows and doors.
  • Be quiet and stay calm.
  • Stay in hiding until a Police Officer gives an "All Clear" notification.

If a hostile intruder is outside a building, run away from the threat as fast as you can.

  • Do not run in a straight line.
  • Keep objects or buildings between you and the intruder.
  • If you can get away from the area of danger, warn others not to enter the area.
  • Dial 911 and report what you have seen.
  • If the intruder is near you and causing great harm, hide if at all possible.
