An Active Shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. They are often over within a matter of minutes, before police can arrive on the scene. If you are in the immediate vicinity of an active shooter, quickly determine the most reasonable way to protect your own life. Remember that students and visitors are likely to follow the lead of employees during an active shooter situation.
