• School Preparedness for Emergency Situations: Dangerous Intruder

    Be Informed

    • If you see something, say something to an authority right away
    • Be aware of your environment and any possible dangers

    Make a Plan

    • Make a plan with your class and co-workers, and ensure everyone knows what they would do
    • Look for the two nearest exits anywhere you go, and have an escape path in mind & identify places you could hide

    During Intruder Event
    (NOTE: these actions are not always in order - see video)

    RUN and escape, if possible

    HIDE, if escape is not possible

    FIGHT as last resort

  • FUSD Training 5/8/18
  • High School
  • Middle School
  • Elementary
  • Office

  • After Event

    • Keep hands visible and empty
    • Follow law enforcement instructions and evacuate in the direction they come from

    Notes: Practice taking action. Remember "RUN, HIDE, FIGHT" may not be in that exact order - you may need to immediately FIGHT. Violence is appropriate to defend yourself in this type of extreme intruder situation.

  • Stay Calm: approach any emergency logically (not emotionally) – rehearse calming techniques like breathing in slowly or counting to 10 to focus before action – mindfulness and controlling your fear will save lives. Try not to freeze during a high stress situation.
