Key safety terms to know
Learn the Three Levels: Shelter-in-Place, Lock Down, Threat on Campus
The following are some key terms for us all to be familiar with in case of an on-campus emergency or an event in the vicinity of campus
The lowest level of emergency. Students, faculty, and staff are instructed to stay inside, close and lock doors and windows as a precaution, continue to conduct business as usual in the classroom, and follow the instructions given via the PA announcements.
An incident that requires a higher level of safety than “Shelter-in-Place” with events in close proximity to campus or on campus. Students, faculty, and staff are instructed to stop all class activity and secure the classroom. Please note that a “Lock Down” does not necessarily signal an immediate, active threat to campus like an “active assailant” incident. Everyone should remain calm in a secure location and follow the instructions given via the PA announcements.
Assailant/Shooter/Threat on campus
The highest level threat in response to an incident that is on campus. Reactions should be based on Run / Hide / Fight protocol. An alert may be initiated through our PA system or a real time reaction based on a visible or audible threat.
